Voith Hydro wins contract for work at Hoover Dam

BOULDER CITY, Nev. 1/18/12 (PennWell) -- Voith Hydro has been awarded a $3.3 million contract to provide parts and labor for Unit A8 at the 2,078-MW Hoover Dam by the Bureau of Reclamation.

The contract, which was last offered in September 2011, calls for the design, manufacture and delivery of one vertical Francis wide-head-range turbine runner. Voith Hydro is also to deliver a set of wicket gates and a replacement.

The work is part of Reclamation's effort to more efficiently generate power over a wider range of lake levels than the existing turbines.
