New Hampshire public power utility received engineering services from Eaton for an electrical equipment replacement planned for its Amoskeag hydroelectric station.
Under the contract, Eaton provided EPC services for the replacement of a generator step-up unit transformer and modified and upgraded high voltage bus and structures.
In addition, the plant also upgraded the protection and control configuration, replacing the low-voltage power distribution equipment, supported by Eaton.
The utility leveraged electrical engineering expertise of Eaton to support the equipment replacement and maintain project timeline.
The equipment replacement project will enable the utility to achieve reliable and sustainable power supply in future.
Located on the Merrimack River in Manchester, New Hampshire, the Amoskeag hydroelectric station includes three generating units that produce 17.5 megawatts of renewable power.
It is one of nine hydroelectric stations owned and operated by Public Service of New Hampshire throughout the state.
In another development, Eaton is helping Green Mountain Power (GMP) to modernize, upgrade and automate the electrical system at its Proctor, Vermont hydroelectric plant. Eaton will update the plant’s power and control systems under the contract.
Last month, Eaton provided electrical engineering services and power distribution equipment for the construction of a 5-megawatt solar microgrid system in Annobon Province in West Central Africa, the largest self-sufficient solar microgrid project in Africa.
