The contract, valued at $10.94 million, will include the design and supply of fixed-blade and adjustable-blade turbine runners to replace existing runners in Units 2 and 3, the Corps of Engineers reported.
The Corps plans to replace turbines at Ice Harbor with "fish friendly" advanced turbines and last year awarded a contract to Destron Fearing for passive integrated transponder technology for fish counting at the hydro project.
