Pöyry is to provide engineering and consultancy services for a headworks rehabilitation project at the Dzora hydropower plant in Armenia, after winning a contract from Energy Invest Holding.

Dzora was built on the Dzoraget river and has been operating since 1932. Pöyry will prepare an inventory of the observed damages to the concrete structures and hydromechanical equipment, assess the reduced operability or the expectable durability of the hydro-scheme based on a risk analysis and clarify the geological/geotechnical potential causes for the damages in view of designing proper countermeasures.

"Delivering clean, renewable energy projects in this region further strengthens Pöyry's position as one of the world's leading hydropower engineering consultancies" said Richard Pinnock, President of Pöyry's Energy Business Group.

The value of the order has not been disclosed.
