The Bureau of Reclamation has scheduled an industry day to update vendors on the upcoming overhaul and uprate of generating units G19-21 at the 4,215-MW Grand Coulee Dam Third Power Plant. The meeting is scheduled July 13.
The Third Power Plant is a development of the 6,809-MW Grand Coulee hydroelectric project on the Columbia River. Other developments are the 1,155-MW Left Power Plant, the 1,125-MW Right Power Plant (HydroWorld 1/2/14), and the 314-MW John W. Keys III Pump-Generating Plant.
The Third Power Plant was built from 1967-1975 with six generating units that are late in their service life. Major turbine-generator components to be replaced are stators including frame, core, windings and soleplates; runners; wicket gates; and generator shafts. Work also includes rehabilitation of rotors, bearing brackets, turbine shafts, head covers, gate operating rings, wicket gate servomotors and ancillary equipment.
The industry day is scheduled to help Reclamation develop an acquisition strategy and to obtain feedback on the project.
The industry day is scheduled for 1:30-3:30 p.m., Pacific time, July 13 at Room D132, Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Ore.
