Alstom wins contract for Carters pumped-storage stator replacements

Carters Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract to Alstom Power Inc. to manufacture replacement stator components at Carters Pumped-Storage facility, part of the 600-MW Carters hydropower project in Georgia.

The Corps’ Mobile District most recently sought bids for the work this past October.

Per the US$18.8 million contract, Alstom will design, manufacture, test and deliver stator laminations, stator windings and accessories for two generator-motors manufactured by General Electric. Work also includes disassembly of units, installation of new equipment, cleaning and testing of rotors, and furnishing and installing of air coolers.

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.
