Aging Hydro Facility Needs Overhaul
An aging hydro generation facility needs an overhaul to assure economical operation for the decades to come.

Case Study: Otter Rapids Hydroelectric Station

Eaton proves that floodwaters can’t stop the music at Opryland
After two days of unrelenting rainfall in May 2010, the usually thriving Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Conference Center in Nashville was dark and deserted. Because of EESS service capabilities, the Opryland powerhouse was fully operational by the July 1st deadline.

Electric utility hydro facility modernization
Eaton’s complete overhaul of the controls systems enhances the ability of the utility to remotely monitor the condition and status of the generating plant.

Facility upgrades its automation and protection systems
Eaton was awarded a turnkey contract as the Electrical & Control Equipment (ECE) contractor to design, supply and install the upgraded protection and control systems for the facility.

Hydro facility upgrades its generation protection and control systems
The objective of this turnkey project was to upgrade the generation protection and control systems, automate the facility, provide remote operation from central dispatch and improve asset protection to increase reliability.

Hydro generation facility undergoes a successful upgrade
This project consisted of replacing many of the control systems while keeping the main infrastructure in place.

Hydroelectric facility upgrades by rehabilitating major equipment
Eaton was selected to provide a new electrical infrastructure for the plant which had not been in operation for 14 years.

Turnkey Solutions
Installation of a modern, Eaton system offers improved system service, plant availability and plant operating costs. Eaton’s turnkey approach enhances the protection of generators and turbines — saving millions of dollars.
