Part of: Waterpower '85


In August 1983 Pelican Cold Storage directed KPL to install a new 600 kW turbine, synchronous generator, controls and penstock transition section. This new equipment was to fit upon the old power house foundation (largly undamaged) and connect to the wood stave penstock (undamaged). Later an order was placed for a pump turbine and 100 kW induction generator. Management of the design, construction, and system operation are presented in the paper.
