Cutting Edge Onsite Machining has been selected to perform cavitation repair work at the Hydroelectric Powerhouse at Oliver Dam in Columbus, Georgia. Georgia Power owns the facility.
Located inside the Columbus city limits on the former site of Clapp’s Factory – one of the South’s leading textile mills in the 1800’s – Oliver Dam is one of the newest and most modern of Georgia Power’s 19 hydroelectric generating plants. The powerhouse, located on the eastern shore of the river, contains the plant’s three 18,000-kilowatt generating units and one 6,000-kilowatt generating unit. Completed in 1959, its four generators have a combined capacity of 60,000 kilowatts and can produce approximately 240 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.
