The Bureau of Reclamation has awarded a $15 million contract to National Electric Coil Inc. to rewind both generators at the 154.4-MW J.F. Carr powerhouse, near Redding, Calif.
National Electric Coil, of Columbus, Ohio, submitted a proposal in response to a solicitation by BuRec’s Mid-Pacific Regional Office. (HNN 12/2/08)
It is to remove and dispose of armature windings and stator cores of the two generators; furnish, install, and test new armature windings and stator cores; and remove, refurbish, reinstall, and test field windings for both generators. National Electric Coil also is to furnish spare parts for armature windings, stator cores, and field windings.
BuRec awarded a $5.3 million contract in 2007 to VA Tech Hydro USA Corp., now known as Andritz Hydro, to replace the turbine runners of both units. Turbine work is scheduled for completion in August 2011.
J.F. Carr, also known as Judge F. Carr, is one of 11 hydroelectric plants in the Central Valley Project.
