The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to seek bids for replacement transformers and site modifications at the 517.8-MW Garrison Dam project on the Missouri River in Garrison, N.D.
The Corps’ Omaha District hired L&S Electric in 2007 to retrofit governors at the hydroelectric project. (Hydro Review April 2007)
The Corps said it plans to issue a request for proposals in early February 2009 for the 115-kilovolt generator step-up transformer installation, with bids to be due about March 5.
Valued at between $2.5 million and $5 million, the work is to include removal of six single-phase 115-kV GSU transformers, reconstruction of the transformer deck to accommodate two new 115-kV three-phase GSU transformers, removal and replacement of the isolated phase bus, replacement of oil-filled high-voltage cables with solid-dielectric high-voltage cables, replacement of the generator neutral grounding system, installation of a transformer deluge and containment system, replacement of transformer controls and relaying, replacement of the annunciation system, and synchronization of potential transformers.
