The Corps of Engineers awarded a $3.3 million contract to Alstom Hydro US Inc. to rewind a generator at the 68-MW DeGray hydro plant on the Caddo River in Arkansas.
The contract calls for Alstom Hydro, of Littleton, Colo., to provide labor, materials, and equipment to rewind the generator of Unit 2.
The Corps made the award Dec. 19, following a call for cost proposals and qualifications to study uprating the generator. (HNN 9/14/06)
DeGray, sometimes called the De Grey project, began operation in the early 1970s, the Corps said.
