Fort Randall Dam Pipe Cable System Replacement Project

Date July 2017

Project Name Fort Randall Dam Pipe Cable System Replacement

Project Project Owner US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)

Main Contractor Interstate Electrical Contractors Inc. Project Location Pickstown, South Dakota

Scope of supply Centaur Saddle, Centaur Anchor Clamp & Centaur Rollers

 

Requirement

An upgrade to the cable systems at the USACE operated Fort Randall Dam, required a flexible system to be designed to cope with thermodynamic movement of the cables. With no prior experience of such systems, USACE & Interstate Electrical Contractors Inc. contacted Ellis for assistance. The requirement was to install 12 cables onto an existing support framework which left limited space for installation

 

Solution

The cables could not be mounted in a rigid system using standard cable cleats, so Ellis developed a custom made variation of the Centaur Cable Saddle with a cable range of 68-73mm. With several bends and risers along the route, Ellis also developed Anchor Clamps to secure the run and provided the Centaur Roller System to assist with installation NASCO1 P1000463 Fort Randall - NASCO
