Voith to rehab turbine at 185.3-MW Fort Peck

Voith Hydro, Inc. has won a contract worth US$13.1 million to rehabilitate a turbine generator at the 185.3-MW Fort Peck hydroelectric plant near Glasgow, Mont.

The Corps' Omaha District last solicited bids for the work in June, which calls for the engineering and design of a new vertical-axis Francis unit to replace one that has been in daily use since 1943. The contract calls for the turbine to be optimized to specified peak performance at a head of 190 feet.

Voith will also be responsible for a generator restack and rewind, and refurbishment of wicket gates, linkages, operating rings, servos, head covers, stay rings and thrust bearings.

HydroWorld.com recently reported that Voith Hydro celebrated the 135th anniversary of its facility in York, Pa.
