The New York Power Authority will open bids June 14 for cleaning and recoating of the exterior surfaces of a 510-ton gantry crane at the Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project in the Catskill Mountains.

The contract includes 17 option items for coating additional surfaces, including gantry crane interior surfaces, two 255-ton hoist trolley systems, transformers, concrete walls, floors, and ceilings in the assembly bay, steel hatches, generator housings, 10-ton bridge crane decks, bus ducts, and valve surfaces.

The 510-ton gantry crane is weight tested with water-filled bags before renovation of the Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project.

The metals will be coated with epoxy, epoxy-urethane and alkyd systems. The existing coatings are presumed to contain lead and other heavy metals; testing and containment will be required.

Hydroelectric Power Project

Tucked below 2,000-foot-tall Brown Mountain, the 38-year-old Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project is a hydroelectric facility that serves as a giant energy-storage device. The facility generates more than one million kilowatts of electricity in peak demand periods by drawing water from Schoharie Creek and recycling it between two huge reservoirs.

The facility is the fifth largest pumped storage power project in the nation.

In June 2010, the facility completed a nearly four-year upgrade project, known as the Life Extension and Modernization effort. The $135 million overhaul replaced the plant’s four pump-turbine generating units to produce more power, more efficiently.

During the rehab, the towering gantry crane was used to lift motor-generators, spherical valves and related electrical and mechanical components for replacement or rehabilitation.
