U.S. awards governor retrofit contracts for hydro projects in Oklahoma

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract to Pennsylvania-based American Governor Company to retrofit governor systems at the 100-MW Broken Bow and 70-MW Keystone hydroelectric projects in Oklahoma.

The Tulsa District seeks design, manufacture, testing, delivery and installation supervision to convert cabinet actuators to digitally controlled electro-hydraulic speed governing systems at Broken Bow on the Mountain Fork River and Keystone on the Arkansas River.

The contract is valued at $417,938.

The Corps recently awarded a contract for repair of cracks in runner blades of two turbines at the 575-MW Carters Dam hydropower project in Georgia.

Carters Dam was built in 1977 on the Coosawattee River for flood control and hydropower.

The Corps awarded Tennessee-based Hydro Power Services LLC a $217,113 contract to repair cracks in blades of Units 1 and 2.
