PERU
First Hydropower Sustainability
Assessment Protocol published for
Peru
Hydropower Sustainability Assessment
Protocol results have been published for the
456MW Chaglla project in Peru.
The scheme, which is the first project in
the country to utilise the IHA’s protocol, is
now in the final stages of construction. It
scored well achieving level 4 or higher on 17
of the 19 sustainability topics against which
it was assessed. A score of 5 – the highest
possible – represents proven best practice
while a score of 3 represents basic good
practice.
According to the final report the project’s
good score was due to its well selected
location, good design and small social and
environmental footprint. It also exhibited a
high degree of corporate commitment to
sustainability combined with the scrutiny of
international lenders.
Chaglla is being financed by equity
contributions from Odebrecht and loans from
a number of development and commercial
banks, including the Inter-American
Development Bank (IDB), Banco Nacional de
Desenvolvimento Econômico e Social
(BNDES), COFIDE (Development Finance
Corporation).
Commercial operations are expected to
commence in February 2016. Once
commissioned the project will provide up to
456MW to the national grid. It will be the
third largest hydroelectric power plant in
Peru, generating approximately 6% of the
country’s power and reducing annual
greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated
1.8Mt.
US
Preliminary plans for pumped
storage at Columbia Gorge
Clean Power Development has applied for a
preliminary permit for the proposed
Columbia Gorge Renewable Energy
Balancing Project in the US. This 1200MW
closed-loop pumped storage facility will be a
sustainable brownfield redevelopment of the
former Columbia Gorge Aluminium smelter
that closed in 2003.
A new lower and upper reservoir,
underground water conveyance tunnel,
underground powerhouse, 230kV
transmission line(s), and other appurtenant
facilities will be constructed as part of the
scheme. The attractive topography of the
Columbia Gorge allows for a gross head of
more than 2000ft to be utilised and Clean
Power Development says that more energy
can be stored using smaller reservoirs,
smaller water conveyances, and smaller
physical equipment sizes; resulting in lower
investment costs and minimal potential
environmental impact. As a closed-loop
system the project would use the Columbia
River for initial fill and periodic make-up
water.
The project would provide critical
balancing services and flexible capacity to
utilities in the Pacific Northwest and
California. It is strategically located at the
northern terminus of the AC-DC Interties
operated by Bonneville Power
Administration, Los Angeles Department of
Water  Power and the California
Independent System Operator which allow
for bulk seasonal power exchange between
British Columbia, Canada, the Northwest
and California.
NEPAL/MALAWI
SMEC awarded new hydro
contracts
SMEC has been awarded deals to work on
hydropower and dam schemes in Nepal and
Malawi.
The company revealed it has been
awarded a contract by the Government of
Nepal’s Department of Electricity
Development to provide detailed
engineering designs and Environmental and
Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) on the
20MW Budhi Ganga hydropower project.
Located on the Budhi Ganga River in the
Far-Western Development Region of Nepal,
this project is a run-of-river scheme
designed to generate an average of
2520GWh per year. The objectives of the
project are:
■ To increase the electricity generation
capacity of Nepal.
■ Help meet growing load demands and
reduce load shedding.
■ Contribute to national economic and
social development.
SMEC, in association with Udaya Consultancy,
will provide review of existing feasibility and
environmental impact study reports; detailed
design of all civil works, hydraulic steel
structures, electromechanical equipment,
transmission lines and substations; and
preparation of tender documents.
Meanwhile in Malawi, the company has
also been engaged to conduct an
Environmental and Social Impact
Assessment and prepare a Resettlement
Action Plan for the Diamphwe Multipurpose
Dam in Lilongwe.
Being built to secure and improve water
supplies to Lilongwe City and surrounding
areas until 2035, the project will support
large-scale irrigation and agriculture, fish
farming and livestock production.
Project works comprise the construction of
a 25m high RCC dam with a storage capacity
of 150,000m3
, a 170m spillway, water supply
and irrigation intakes, 80km of pipeline, and
a 1000 hectare irrigation scheme.
AUSTRALIA
Garden Island wave powers new
scheme
Wave energy developer Carnegie Wave
Energy has signed a memorandum of
understanding with Western Australia’s
government power utility, Western Power, to
deliver a renewable energy island micro grid
project.
The Garden Island Micro Grid Project
(GIMG) will be the first such wave-
integrated renewable scheme to be
connected to an electricity network. The
GIMG will consist of the CETO 6 project
currently in progress and the existing
reverse osmosis desalination plant currently
operating on Garden Island. It will also add
an additional 2MW of peak solar
photovoltaic power generation and sufficient
energy storage to allow safe, stable and
reliable interaction with the electricity grid.
Carnegie’s CEO, Dr Michael Ottaviano
said: “Carnegie sees great potential to
integrate its world leading CETO wave
technology into islands as well as fringe of
grid applications wherever there is a strong
wave resource. Western Australia presents
itself as an attractive option to locate wave
power projects in coastal communities and
avoid building and maintaining long
transmission lines.”
“We will provide engineering expertise to
assess the technical challenges of enabling a
two way flow of power between a large
integrated network and a microgrid that has
a mix of renewable sources of generation,
including wave energy,” Western Power
CEO Paul Italiano added.
Garden Island is about 10km long, 1.5km
wide, lying about 5km off the Western
Australian coast.
MOROCCO
EBRD boosts Morocco’s hydro
power
The European Bank for Reconstruction and
Development (EBRD) is increasing its
support to Morocco’s renewable energy
sector with a loan of up to €35M to the
Office National de l’Electricite et de l’Eau
Potable (ONEE).
ONEE will use the funds to finance a
rehabilitation programme of 12 small and
medium-sized hydropower plants and the
refurbishment of safety elements. It will
contribute to the extension of the lifespan of

Preliminary plans for pumped storage at Columbia Gorge

  • 1. INTERNATIONAL WATER POWER & DAM CONSTRUCTION December 20156 World News 6 World News PERU First Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol published for Peru Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol results have been published for the 456MW Chaglla project in Peru. The scheme, which is the first project in the country to utilise the IHA’s protocol, is now in the final stages of construction. It scored well achieving level 4 or higher on 17 of the 19 sustainability topics against which it was assessed. A score of 5 – the highest possible – represents proven best practice while a score of 3 represents basic good practice. According to the final report the project’s good score was due to its well selected location, good design and small social and environmental footprint. It also exhibited a high degree of corporate commitment to sustainability combined with the scrutiny of international lenders. Chaglla is being financed by equity contributions from Odebrecht and loans from a number of development and commercial banks, including the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Econômico e Social (BNDES), COFIDE (Development Finance Corporation). Commercial operations are expected to commence in February 2016. Once commissioned the project will provide up to 456MW to the national grid. It will be the third largest hydroelectric power plant in Peru, generating approximately 6% of the country’s power and reducing annual greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 1.8Mt. US Preliminary plans for pumped storage at Columbia Gorge Clean Power Development has applied for a preliminary permit for the proposed Columbia Gorge Renewable Energy Balancing Project in the US. This 1200MW closed-loop pumped storage facility will be a sustainable brownfield redevelopment of the former Columbia Gorge Aluminium smelter that closed in 2003. A new lower and upper reservoir, underground water conveyance tunnel, underground powerhouse, 230kV transmission line(s), and other appurtenant facilities will be constructed as part of the scheme. The attractive topography of the Columbia Gorge allows for a gross head of more than 2000ft to be utilised and Clean Power Development says that more energy can be stored using smaller reservoirs, smaller water conveyances, and smaller physical equipment sizes; resulting in lower investment costs and minimal potential environmental impact. As a closed-loop system the project would use the Columbia River for initial fill and periodic make-up water. The project would provide critical balancing services and flexible capacity to utilities in the Pacific Northwest and California. It is strategically located at the northern terminus of the AC-DC Interties operated by Bonneville Power Administration, Los Angeles Department of Water Power and the California Independent System Operator which allow for bulk seasonal power exchange between British Columbia, Canada, the Northwest and California. NEPAL/MALAWI SMEC awarded new hydro contracts SMEC has been awarded deals to work on hydropower and dam schemes in Nepal and Malawi. The company revealed it has been awarded a contract by the Government of Nepal’s Department of Electricity Development to provide detailed engineering designs and Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) on the 20MW Budhi Ganga hydropower project. Located on the Budhi Ganga River in the Far-Western Development Region of Nepal, this project is a run-of-river scheme designed to generate an average of 2520GWh per year. The objectives of the project are: ■ To increase the electricity generation capacity of Nepal. ■ Help meet growing load demands and reduce load shedding. ■ Contribute to national economic and social development. SMEC, in association with Udaya Consultancy, will provide review of existing feasibility and environmental impact study reports; detailed design of all civil works, hydraulic steel structures, electromechanical equipment, transmission lines and substations; and preparation of tender documents. Meanwhile in Malawi, the company has also been engaged to conduct an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment and prepare a Resettlement Action Plan for the Diamphwe Multipurpose Dam in Lilongwe. Being built to secure and improve water supplies to Lilongwe City and surrounding areas until 2035, the project will support large-scale irrigation and agriculture, fish farming and livestock production. Project works comprise the construction of a 25m high RCC dam with a storage capacity of 150,000m3 , a 170m spillway, water supply and irrigation intakes, 80km of pipeline, and a 1000 hectare irrigation scheme. AUSTRALIA Garden Island wave powers new scheme Wave energy developer Carnegie Wave Energy has signed a memorandum of understanding with Western Australia’s government power utility, Western Power, to deliver a renewable energy island micro grid project. The Garden Island Micro Grid Project (GIMG) will be the first such wave- integrated renewable scheme to be connected to an electricity network. The GIMG will consist of the CETO 6 project currently in progress and the existing reverse osmosis desalination plant currently operating on Garden Island. It will also add an additional 2MW of peak solar photovoltaic power generation and sufficient energy storage to allow safe, stable and reliable interaction with the electricity grid. Carnegie’s CEO, Dr Michael Ottaviano said: “Carnegie sees great potential to integrate its world leading CETO wave technology into islands as well as fringe of grid applications wherever there is a strong wave resource. Western Australia presents itself as an attractive option to locate wave power projects in coastal communities and avoid building and maintaining long transmission lines.” “We will provide engineering expertise to assess the technical challenges of enabling a two way flow of power between a large integrated network and a microgrid that has a mix of renewable sources of generation, including wave energy,” Western Power CEO Paul Italiano added. Garden Island is about 10km long, 1.5km wide, lying about 5km off the Western Australian coast. MOROCCO EBRD boosts Morocco’s hydro power The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is increasing its support to Morocco’s renewable energy sector with a loan of up to €35M to the Office National de l’Electricite et de l’Eau Potable (ONEE). ONEE will use the funds to finance a rehabilitation programme of 12 small and medium-sized hydropower plants and the refurbishment of safety elements. It will contribute to the extension of the lifespan of
