Barkley Unit 1 generator back in operation after major repairs

From left, Jamie Holt, power plant specialist, and Jamie James, project manager, stand atop U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District’s recently repaired Barkley Hydropower Plant Unit 1 generator Kuttawa, Ky. The unit suffered a phase-to-ground fault resulting in a fire that damaged the 32.5 Megawatt generator wirings in Dec. 19, 2010. The $11.5 million, major repair project began Aug. 15, 2012 when contractor employees lifted the 270-ton assembly by crane and placed it on a nearby pedestal for repair by National Electric Coil from Columbus, Ohio. Unit 1 was placed back on line Nov. 18, 2013. (USACE photo by Fred Tucker)
