ANDRITZ HYDRO was awarded a contract from the Egyptian Ministries of Energy and Water Resources for the supply and installation of four bulb turbines, generators, and the electrical and hydromechanical equipment for the rebuild of the Assiut barrage, the oldest dam in the Egyptian section of the River Nile. The order value amounts to approximately 107 MEUR, the contract is scheduled to be put into force during the first quarter of 2012.

The Assiut rebuild will not only considerably improve the conditions for irrigation and shipping, but also create a means of generating electricity from renewable hydropower. As of 2017, the four ANDRITZ HYDRO bulb units with a total output of 32 MW will provide approximately 75,000 households with environmentally- friendly electricity.

For decades, ANDRITZ HYDRO has been using very efficient bulb units with particularly high flow rates, especially for very low heads. For the Assiut project, Kaplan runners with only three blades will be supplied, perfectly suiting the low design head and its variation margin from 3 to 6.5 m. Despite their relatively low output, the turbines and generators, which are mainly produced in ANDRITZ HYDRO workshops in Germany and Austria, have rather impressive dimensions, for example the turbine runners will have a diameter of 5.6 m.
