Ohio firm named to rewind generator at 130-MW Barkley

NASHVILLE, Tenn., U.S. 10/18/11 (PennWell) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded an $8.69 million contract to an Ohio firm to rewind generator No. 1 at the 130-MW Barkley hydroelectric project on the Cumberland River in Kentucky.

The Corps awarded the contract to National Electric Coil of Columbus, Ohio, to disassemble the generator, inspect and test bearings, replace stator windings and stator core, reinsulate damaged rotor poles, replace air coolers and piping, and reassemble the unit.

The Corps' Nashville District took bids for the work in September. The project is among nine Corps hydropower plants on the Cumberland that a study found need as much as $470 million in repairs.
