Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Waterpower '85


This paper outlines a Westinghouse managed turnkey hydro electric project located in remote southwestern Wyoming near Kemmerer. The dam provides watershed control for the Hams Fork River, and is used to provide storage for cooling and evaporation make-up for a coal-fired power plant located nearby. Specifications for a new hydro generation plant were issued in 1984, requiring turnkey supply/installation services for the total plant less the transmission and utility interconnection. This paper discusses the contract work requirements, environmental factors that affected the work, and project management that exploited local team input.
