The contract includes the design, manufacture, testing, supply, erection and commissioning of all equipment associated with one 75 MW vertical Francis turbine, generator, control systems and electrical balance-of-plant equipment. The turbine and generator will be manufactured at Alstom's Vadodara plant in Gujarat, India.

"This project showcases our technological leadership in the hydro sector and reaffirms the confidence that our customers have in our ability to deliver world-class products and solutions in different regions and geographies," Alstom Renewable Power president Jerome Pecresse said.

The existing 150-MW Thac Mo complex is located on the Be River in Vietnam's Binh Phuoc province. The plant was commissioned in 1995 and houses two 75 MW Francis turbines.
