French engineering group Alstom has secured a contract worth about EUR50m from Canadian utility Hydro-Quebec to modernise a hydroelectric generating facility in Canada.

Located on the La Grande River in northern Quebec, the Robert-Bourassa hydroelectric station consists of 16 units with a total generating capacity of 5,616MW.

Alstom will design, manufacture and deliver four new 333MW Francis turbine runners for units 1-4 of the facility.

The company said it will also carry out the complete refurbishment and modernisation of two turbine-generator groups.
