Conowingo Hydropower Plant

Lignum Vitae North America has been awarded a contract to supply a water-lubricated main guide bearing for the 574.54-MW Conowingo hydropower project in Maryland.

Located on the Susquehanna River, Conowingo Dam was completed in 1928 and is one of the largest non-federal hydroelectric plants in the United States.

Lignum Vitae said the conversion to its water-lubricated main guide bearings will provide "maximum uptime and lower maintenance cost."
