Eaton to supply hydraulic system for Nakdong River Restoration Project in Korea

Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced it has been named the hydraulic system supplier for the restoration of a large barrage gate on South Korea's Nakdong River.

The contract to supply hydraulic power units, motors and gearboxes for critical gate operations has a total value of approximately US$4.1 million by 2011.

The Nakdong River project is part of a larger project that includes upgrade of the Han, Geum and Yeongsan rivers by 2012. The effort will reinforce eroded riverbanks, repair wash-out areas and restore the ecosystem of the rivers, a press release states.

Eaton will supply hydraulic power units and Dowmax Series hydraulics motors and gearboxes to operate the 131-foot (40-meter)-wide barrage gate that controls water level. The hydraulic components are being built by Eaton facilities in the United States, Japan and Mexico and will be delivered in 2010 and 2011.

Earlier in 2010, Eaton announced it will supply more than $2.5 million in electrical products and services to upgrade the Hartwell Dam hydroelectric power plant in Georgia.

The 422-MW Hartwell Dam hydroelectric project is located on the Savannah River.

Eaton obtained the contract through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Savannah, Ga., office.
