Anderson Ranch Contract Awardedby Staff
International Water Power and Dam Construction, January 3, 2006
Eaton Electrical has been awarded a $644,415 construction contract by the US Bureau of Reclamation to improve the hydro power facilities at Anderson Ranch dam on the south fork of the Boise river in Idaho, US.
The work involves the installation and testing of new static exciters for two 20MW hydroelectric generators. The work is expected to be completed by 31 March 2007.
Anderson Ranch dam was completed in 1950; it serves as a multiple-purpose structure that provides benefits for irrigation, power, and flood and silt control. The power plant supplies power to irrigation loads in the Boise, Owyhee, and Minidoka projects as part of the USBRŐs Southern Idaho Power System. Surplus power is delivered to the Bonneville Power Administration for marketing and distribution to regional industries and municipalities.
