GEORGIA POWER COMPANY
The Nacoochee Development is located on the Tallulah River in Northeast Georgia and has been in operation since 1926. The plant produces 4.8 MW of power.
CHC provided an 1850 mm conventional propeller replacement runner with manually adjustable blades capable of producing 2400 kW of power as well as a set of sixteen new stainless steel wicket gates. One of the existing Nacoochee wicket gates was digitally replicated to create a pattern for the castings. CHC also refurbished the existing shaft with stainless steel wear sleeves, provided a new guide bearing and guide bearing housing and bottom ring cast from stainless steel.
