The Lake Hodges Pipeline and Hydro Electric Pump Station is a part of San Diego County Water Authorities Emergency Storage project. Hydraulic turbines will provide the additional benefit of capturing energy created when water flows from the Olivenhain Reservoir into Lake Hodges. The pump station will generate 40 Megawatt capacity by utilizing 2 each 20 MW (15300 HP) vertical generators. This very important project will increase the amount of water available within the county for use during emergencies. The work being performed consists of the construction of new pump station and inlet outlet structures, installation of fabricated steel pipe and fittings, and related systems, gates and valves, and other appurtenances.
ON-SITE provided shop fabrication inspection services of the mechanical equipment and large diameter steel pipe and fittings associated with this project at various locations both domestic and China, Brazil, and Canada.
