The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to manufacture replacement stator components at Carters Pumped-Storage facility, part of the 600-MW Carters Dam hydroelectric project in Georgia. Bids now are due Oct. 22.
The Corps' Mobile District previously called for bids by Oct. 15. It sought information in April on firms able to perform the work. Carters Dam was built in 1977 on the Coosawattee River for flood control and hydropower. Two of its units, Nos. 3 and 4, are reversible pump-turbines. The Corps awarded a contract in 2011 to Hydro Power Services LLC to repair cracks in blades of Units 1 and 2.
The Mobile District now seeks bids to design, manufacture, test and deliver stator laminations, stator windings and accessories for two generator-motors manufactured by General Electric. Work includes disassembly of units, installation of new equipment, cleaning and testing of rotors, and furnishing and installing of air coolers.
