Big Bend Dam Turbine Rehab

Big Bend Dam Turbine Rehab

Gracon installed a new high lift pump system on each of the eight 61 MW units. On two of the units, Gracon installed new thrust bearing coolers and piping, and machined and installed two new turbine shaft sleeves. We also machined the final diameter of three additional shaft sleeves and machined and repaired two packing box housings.
