Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) / California Department of Water Resources
Castaic Instrumentation Assessment
TSG was involved in a joint effort between the LA DWP and State of California Department of Water Resources to assess instrumentation devices for the rehabilitation of components of the six reversible power units for the Castaic Hydroelectric Power Plant. This rehab project brought dated units up to current standards, increasing hydro pumping and manpower efficiency. TSG was responsible for collecting and recording data related to all pressure, level, flow, temperature, position, vibration and sound instruments and gauges, information that was used to determine which instruments were still usable and which needed replacement. Our staff also conducted interviews with facility operators and engineers to identify critical instruments and those which could be discarded. An in-depth report of our findings and recommendations was presented to our clients at the conclusion of the project.
