Alstom wins La Romaine hydro project

26 July 2013

Alstom has been awarded a contract worth more than $ 90 million CA (€ 65 million) for Hydro-Québec's La Romaine 3 power house, one of four new power houses that make up the 1,550 MW La Romaine hydroelectric complex, located north of the municipality of Havre-Saint-Pierre on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. This contract was booked during first quarter of fiscal year 2013/2014.
The scope of the contract includes the supply of two 200 MW vertical Francis turbine-generator units. Alstom will install and commission the equipment at the La Romaine 3 site.
The design of the turbines, generators, and auxiliaries, and the project management will be led by a team from Alstom's North American hydro facility located in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec..
In March 2010, Alstom signed a contract for the supply of two 320 MW turbine-generator units for La Romaine 2. Alstom equipment at La Romaine 2 and 3, the largest of the complex's four power houses, will account for two-thirds of the total 1550 MW of power produced (5.3 TWh out of a total 8.0 TWh annually).
Alstom Grid, the company's power transmission sector, is also contributing to the broader La Romaine hydroelectric complex through the supply of high voltage switchgear equipment - disconnect switches and circuit breakers.  Alstom will manufacture the switchgear apparatus at its facility in La Prairie, Quebec.
