Project Description:
To eliminate an aging design that was becoming difficult to maintain, L&S Electric was commissioned for the turnkey supply of PLC-based governor conversions, including new distributing valves, for all three Kaplan turbines at the Upriver Plant #1.  Also included in the project was the turnkey supply of a Basler DECS-400 conversion for each exciter.

As a result of the success of Plant #1, L&S Electric was awarded the modernization work for the Upriver Plant #2.  Here the scope of participation includes the turnkey supply of PLC-based governor conversions, including new distributing valves, for both Kaplan turbines at the plant.  Also included is the turnkey supply of full Basler DECS-400 static exciters to replace existing Fuji equipment.
