  • Corps awards contract for evaluation at three facilities

    SAVANNAH, Ga. 2/14/12 (PennWell) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract worth more than US$195,000 to HDR Engineering Inc., to perform an evaluation of operating practices at three hydroelectric plants along the Savannah River.

    The Corps solicited bids in December 2011 for the evaluation, which will include the 600-MW Richard B. Russell, 422-MW Hartwell, and 280-MW J. Strom Thurmond facilities.

    The goal of the study is to explore options for increased efficiency through automation upgrades and remote operation while assuring plant safety, reliability, and availability requirements.
