U.S. awards Voith Hydro contract for Ice Harbor hydro project turbine upgrade

The Corps of Engineers awarded Voith Hydro Inc. a contract to design and supply two advanced turbines for the 603-MW Ice Harbor hydroelectric project on Washington’s lower Snake River.

The contract, valued at $10.94 million, will include the design and supply of fixed-blade and adjustable-blade turbine runners to replace existing runners in Units 2 and 3, the Corps of Engineers reported.

The Corps plans to replace turbines at Ice Harbor with "fish friendly" advanced turbines and last year awarded a contract to Destron Fearing for passive integrated transponder technology for fish counting at the hydro project.
