American Governor to replace PGE governor fleet

17 August 2018

Portland General Electric (PGE) has awarded American Governor Company (AGC) a multi-year contract to replace all 16 hydro governors in its hydro fleet, spread across six hydropower plants.

The PGE hydro fleet consists of a wide variety of legacy governor types, styles and vintages, with the earliest governor dating back to 1924. AGC’s contract includes standardized digital governor equipment, project engineering, project management, installation support, and commissioning services. Spare parts, training, and distributing valve repair or replacement will be covered by contract extensions, as needed. The first sets of equipment are expected to be on-site in early 2019 with follow-on units to be delivered through 2021.

AGC has provided spare parts, technical support, training, and field service for PGE’s legacy governors for over 17 years.
