The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract to Hydro Consulting and Maintenance Services Inc. for turbine cavitation repairs at the 58-MW Clarence Cannon hydroelectric plant in northeast Missouri.
The Corps. St. Louis District most recently called for bids in February 2015 for work that includes cavitation repair on a Francis turbine runner at the project.
HCMS is also to perform base repairs of the runner crown, band and blades with a stainless steel overlay, replacement of packaging on 28 wicket gates, cleanup and disposal of grease in the turbine pit.
Clarence Cannon is located in Ralls and Monroe counties in Missouri, where it creates Mark Twain Lake by impounding the Salt River.
