NAES Power Contractors, Inc. has been selected by the Kodiak Electric Association to install and commission an 11.25 MW vertical Pelton hydro turbine-generator unit at Alaska’s Terror Lake hydroelectric plant, HydroWorld.com has learned.
The new water turbine will increase the Terror Lake hydroelectric station’s total installed to 31 MW, NAES said, which will contribute to Kodiak’s goal of having 95% of its power supplied by renewable sources by 2020.
HydroWorld.com previously reported that the Terror Lake project was purchased by the Kodiak Electric Association in 2009 from the Southeast Alaska Power Agency.
NAES said the new turbine and all ancillary equipment should be in service by October.
The Issaquah-based company will be exhibiting at HydroVision International 2013 in Booth No. 543. HydroVision International 2013 runs July 24-26 at Denver’s Colorado Convention Center.
