U.S. awards governor upgrade contract for 52-MW Sam Rayburn

The Corps of Engineers awarded a $740,500 contract to L&S Electric Inc. to upgrade governors at 52-MW Sam Rayburn Dam on the Angelina River north of Jasper, Texas.

L&S Electric of Schofield, Wis., submitted the successful proposal to do the work in response to a solicitation. (HNN 6/1/07) The Corps made the award in August.

L&S Electric will provide personnel, equipment, oversight, and management to convert mechanical-hydraulic governors of two generating units to new independent and dedicated digital governors, controls, and monitoring systems. Contract documents call for work on the second generator to begin after the government accepts work completed on the first unit.
