KINSHASA, Democratic Republic of Congo 1/25/12 (PennWell) -- Alstom Hydro and Andritz Hydro have been awarded a joint contract worth about US$102.2 million for work at the existing 1,424-MW Inga 2 hydroelectric project.

Alstom and Andritz will rehabilitate two turbine-generators at this plant as part of the Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) initiative to develop a 40,000-MW Grand Inga hydropower facility on the Congo River. This work involves increasing capacity at both the 350-MW Inga 1 and Inga 2 projects, as well as building the 4,300-MW Inga 3 project.
