Andritz supports construction of destructive dam in Turkey

Andritz is an equipment supplier for the construction of the Ilusu Dam. Save the Tigris Campaign (a coalition of NGOs from Iraq, Iran and Turkey) have claimed that the company fails to comply with international law. According to the Campaign, the dam construction will lead to the displacement of about 78,000 people in Turkey, harm diverse ecosystems, threaten cultural and natural heritage and affect millions of people living downstream.1
