Power Machines Fezer, an affiliate of Power Machines which is located in Brazil, and the Recanto Energética SPE S/A company (Brazil) concluded a contract for the delivery of principal hydraulic equipment for the Recanto small-scale hydraulic power plant, which is currently under construction.
The contract’s conclusion was preceded by a tender in which Power Machines competed with large power engineering companies, as well as with Brazilian small turbine manufacturers.
Under the contract, the Power Machines affiliate will manufacture and deliver to the power plant two horizontal bulb-type hydraulic power units, each with a capacity of 4.75 MW. Power Machines Fezer will also render the supervised installation services and train the power plant personnel.
"At present, northern and north-eastern regions of the Mato Grosso state have limited access to electric energy," says Artyom Varnakov, the General Director of Power Machines Fezer. "Putting the Recanto power plant into operation will give impetus to the economic and industrial development of these territories."
The activity of Power Machines Fezer is focused on the development of new products for small-scale power generation. At present, the company is taking part in the implementation of a project involving the manufacture and delivery of hydraulic equipment for Bom Jesus, Theodoro Schlickmann and Abranjo Brazilian HPPS. It also delivers spare parts for the La Mina HPP (Chile) and ball pre-turbine gate valves for the upgrade of the Henry Borden HPP (Brazil).
