Alstom Renewable Sweden AB has been selected by Vattenfall Vattenkraft AB to upgrade one of three turbine units at the 327-MW hydropower plant in Sweden.
The company will perform model testing at Vattenfall's laboratory in Alvkarleby to verify technical performance guarantees before it is installed at the project, which is located on the Lulea River in the country's northern region.
"We have chosen Alstom as supplier for this important modernization project based on a combination of the technical solution offered and a competitive price," Vattenfall Nordic Hydro Power executive Christer Ljunggren said.
