U.S. awards station service rehab contract for Garrison Dam hydro project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded Arkansas-based Koontz Electric Company Inc. a $3.89 million contract for rehabilitation of station service at the 517.8-MW Garrison Dam hydro project on the Missouri River in Garrison, N.D.

The work involves removal and replacement of station service equipment, including breakers and current limiting reactor, station service transformers, station service switchgear buses and motor control centers.

The Corps recently awarded a contract to IES Commercial Inc. for replacement transformers and site modifications at Garrison. The Corps’ Omaha District hired L&S Electric in 2007 to retrofit governors at the hydroelectric project.
