Irish utility seeks governors for 292-MW Turlough Hill

Irish utility ESB Power Generation invites applications for pre-qualification to supply replacement governors for the 292-MW Turlough Hill pumped-storage project at Glendalough in County Wicklow. Responses are due December 18.

ESB seeks planning, design, manufacture, installation, testing, and commissioning of a replacement governor control system, electro-hydraulic converter, speed measurement system, and overspeed system for one of Turlough Hill’s four pump-turbine units. The contract includes an option for similar work on the plant’s other three units. One unit would require nine months, with all four to take 45 months, for completion.

ESB said it anticipates issuing a request for tenders in first quarter 2007, with a contract to be awarded in the third quarter, and work to be completed in the third quarter of 2008.
