This process, known as a generator rewind, includes replacement of the stator core and other components. Disassembly and reassembly of the rotating machinery will be accomplished by Reclamation's Northern California Area Office employees. The contract includes an option for the second unit at this two-unit facility for $4 million.
"This project refurbishes a hydroelectric generator that has been in service since 1964," Reclamation Commissioner Michael L. Connor said today. "Maintaining and updating our equipment and infrastructure are key elements in ensuring Reclamation's ability to provide cost-effective, non-polluting hydroelectric power."
The Spring Creek Powerplant is a feature of the Trinity River Division of the Central Valley Project, with a combined generating capacity of 190 megawatts.
