GE Energy Supplies Norway Hydropower Project

Sunnhordland Kraftlag AS has selected GE Energy to supply the hydro turbine and generator for the Blaafalli Vik hydropower station being built on the west coast of Norway, about 110 kilometers southeast of Bergen. The new facility will replace two old power plants, Blaafalli 1 and Blaafalli 2, which both will be stopped and de-commissioned when the new Blaafalli Vik is commissioned. Under a contract of approximately US$16 million, GE Energy will provide a 235 MW, 365.5-meter head vertical Francis hydro turbine and one vertical, synchronous generator with an excitation system. In addition to the turbine and generator, the GE contract also includes mechanical balance-of-plant equipment, design and engineering, spare parts, transportation, training, installation and commissioning.
