U.S. awards excitation contract for 10-MW Fontenelle

The Bureau of Reclamation awarded a $300,000 contract for a static excitation system for the 10-MW Fontenelle hydroelectric project on the Green River in Wyoming. BuRec announced May 7 that Turbine Control Service Associates Inc., Pittsburgh, Pa., submitted the winning bid for the work. (HNN 1/28/09) Turbine Control is to remove the existing static pilot excitation system for the plant's single generating unit, including asbestos-insulated wiring. The contractor is to modify a rotating direct current exciter and furnish and install a new static pilot excitation system, including power potential transformer, circuit breakers, digital voltage and associated limiters, instrumentation, protection, and control components. The Fontenelle Dam powerhouse began operating in 1968, about 24 miles southeast of La Barge, Wyo. Fontenelle is part of the government's Seedskadee project.
