Bradley Lake Hydroelectric Project is located on the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. The project consists of two 63 MVA turbine-generators fed via a single 3.5-mile-long penstock. The water source is Lake Bradley which was enlarged by the construction of a rockfill dam. Generation is to be controlled remotely by microwave link. The Bradley Lake O&M Manual was produced in lieu of a standard plant manual. Maintenance is to be scheduled and managed by a conputerized system. Operation in Alaska requires adherence to safety requirements, preparation for emergency situations and reporting for expense and rate structure considerations.
