US Army Tulsa District Engineering Core Award Unico Mechanical $ 4.9 Million Contract to Rehabilitate Hydroelectric Components


“We are proud that the core army engineers have approved our team and entrusted us with this large-scale and complex butterfly valve rehabilitation project,” said Randy Potter, President and CEO of Unico Mechanical. “Our team brings decades of experience in overhauling large-scale hydroelectric valves, including past projects for the Army Engineers Core and the Bureau of Reclamation, so this project is an ideal fit. Critical to the success of the project that the engineering, manufacturing and installation of all components are managed and executed by a single entity to ensure the smooth running of the project and its completion on time and to specification. We have revised more big valves in the hydropower market than any other party and this experience is essential for a planned outage to stay on schedule. Nothing replaces the knowledge and experience gained by actually doing similar work. “

“We have seen a dramatic increase in hydropower flow control overhaul projects in recent years and have stepped up our activity to meet increased needs as the rehabilitation of our country’s hydropower infrastructure is underway. . Earlier this year we acquired several companies including Accurate Machining, this allowed us to expand our field service team with some of the most experienced field machinists in this industry. “

The Tenkiller Dam valve renovation of the two 180-inch butterfly valves includes new gearboxes and controls, lubrication systems and valve bypass systems. Unico Mechanical will provide all contract related services with its own highly skilled craftsmen and in-house technical support.
