Italy utility awards turbine contract for 6.16-MW Ributino

Italian utility Azienda Specializzata Settore Multiservizi SpA (ASSM) has awarded a contract to Voith Hydro SpA to supply replacement turbine-generators for ASSM's 6.16-MW Ributino hydroelectric project.

ASSM, a municipal utility providing electricity, natural gas, and water service, took bids in January for supply and installation of Kaplan turbine-generator groups with all accessories.

The two-unit Ributino was built in 1964. The contract awarded to Voith's Italian subsidiary is valued at 3.9 million euros (US$5.48 million) for replacement of both generating units. The work, to require 111 days, had been valued at 4.35 million euros (US$5.79 million).

There were three bidders for the work.
