Contract for Blenheim-Gilboa pumped-storage hydro project work awarded to Gomez and Sullivan Engineers

New York-based engineering and environmental science firm Gomez and Sullivan Engineers has been awarded a contract for work at the New York Power Authority's Blenheim-Gilboa pumped-storage hydropower project.

Gomez and Sullivan Engineers will provide inspection and consulting services for the dam at the Blenheim-Gilboa project, which is located in the Northern Catskill Mountains, wire reports indicate. The five-year deal is for $230,000, according to reports.

The facility is subject to federal inspection requirements. Gomez and Sullivan submitted the low bid to do the work, according to the authority.

The New York Power Authority recently marked the completion of a nearly four-year overhaul of its Blenheim-Gilboa pumped-storage hydro project.

NYPA’s Life Extension and Modernization (LEM) effort will improve the reliability of critical electricity infrastructure and increase the NYPA's ability to help meet the long-term energy needs of the state, the NYPA reported.
