Project Overview

These projects involved the replacement or rebuild of Green Mountain Power’s existing intake structures at facilities across Vermont. Work addressed aging infrastructure and included new head gates, trash racks, trash rack air blast system, cofferdam, head gates and electrical operators, penstock and cofferdam. Modifications involved dredging, removal of wood head gates and manual operators, and concrete refacing of intake channels.

PC’s Special Projects Group self-performed the cofferdam installation, concrete foundations, head and waste gate erection, control building structure repairs and an air blast system.


PC’s four-decade collaboration with Green Mountain Power began with the construction of the Bolton Falls Hydroelectric Plant in 1985. Today, our Special Projects Group continues to provide key construction services on over 200 contracts in Vermont, New Hampshire and New York.
