PALISADE, Colo., U.S. 1/6/12 (PennWell) -- The Bureau of Reclamation has awarded contracts to Alstom Power and Basler Electric for work at the 8.64-MW Upper Molina and 4.86-MW Lower Molina hydroelectric plants.

The tender, issued in August 2011, called for the manufacture and delivery of one excitation system for each project.
