Sunrise Engineering teamed with Slayden Construction Company and CF Malms Engineer LLC in a design/build contract to complete the Juniper Ridge Hydroelectric Project in Bend, Oregon for the Central Oregon Irrigation District (COID) in 18 months from award of contract to start-up.
The project included 2.5 miles of 108-inch diameter penstock, diversion, forebay, powerhouse, switch yard, afterbay, and by-pass stilling basin. The power generation facility includes a 5.0-MW turbine/generator along with all associated piping and valves.
Our innovative design saved the COID over $1.0M in equipment and facilities for flow by-pass valves and facilities from what was contemplated at the time of bid versus final design and construction. The project was constructed with no change orders except those required by COID.
