Gorge Hydro Plant

GMP NO. 18 GORGE HYDRO PLANT

Having successfully installed operator safety cables at a half dozen other sites, GMP asked Fairbanks Mill, Inc to design and install a system at the Gorge Plant, by far the most difficult. FMI tracked down a structural engineer who specializes in tension structures to use the latest design software to assist in the cable and anchor point layout. Because of the extremely difficult access, a field survey was supplemented by aerial photos. Installation was accomplished in winter, using the ice to assist in accessing the work. Cable tension is maintained by a counterweight suspended in one of the terminal towers.
