Trelleborg wins parts supply award for Grand Coulee hydropower project rehab

Grand Coulee Dam

Parts and technology manufacturer Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has been awarded a contract to supply materials for the Bureau of Reclamation's Grand Coulee Powerhouse III refurbishment project.

The Indiana-based company said its Orkot TXMM hydro bearing material will be used on three of Grand Coulee's units, with applications on control gate link bushings, operating rings and wicket gate bushings.

Grand Coulee's 4,485-MW Third Power Plant is currently in the beginning stages of a major rehabilitation. Reclamation has issued a number of solicitations for work at the project in recent months -- most recently for the construction of a transformer containment basin.
