Runner replacement at Lookout Point Dam
Crews remove the old turbine runner from Unit 2 at Lookout Point Dam near Lowell, Ore., and prepare to install its replacement. Replacing the runners on the three hydropower units at the dam will improve reliability and reduce maintenance costs. The project will cost about $25.3 million over the next two years. The work is being done by Voith Hydro of Springfield, Ore. Lookout Point Dam generates up to 120 megawatts of electricity for homes and businesses in the Pacific Northwest.
