The Bureau of Reclamation awarded a $1.5 million contract to modernize two existing passenger/freight elevators in the Third Power Plant at Grand Coulee Dam.
Thyssenkrupp Elevator Corporation, Spokane Valley, Wash., was awarded the contract on Feb. 1. The contract was announced Tuesday.
Work involves modernizing the two existing elevators.
“This upgrade will ensure the safety of our employees while also keeping vital equipment in premium working order during the Third Powerplant Overhaul Project,” said Mark Jenson, Grand Coulee Project manager.
The refurbishment also includes providing new or upgraded lighting, power receptacles and communication systems, as well as fire detection and alarm system components.
Work is expected to start in May, and be completed by January, 2013.
