    GE Renewable Announces Two Hydropower Services Contracts in US

    GE Renewable Energy announced that it has signed two hydropower contracts in the United States, one for FirstLight’s Northfield Mountain project and one for PG&E’s Caribou One hydropower station. FirstLight has chosen GE Renewable Energy to design, supply, install and commission a new spherical valve at the 4 x 292 MW Northfield Mountain pumped hydro storage station, New England’s largest energy storage facility. The powerhouse can generate more than 8,700 megawatt-hours of electricity every day, the equivalent of 87,000 fully charged electric cars.

    The new valve, which has a 114” internal diameter and weighs approximately 90 tons, will be designed to improve the station’s flexibility by allowing the unit to cycle approximately 10 times per day more often than it currently does. This flexibility is important given the increasing amount of intermittent wind and solar power being used in the region. The project, which is being supported by GE Renewable Energy’s Hydro teams in Denver is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

    FirstLight Vice President of Operations Mr Justin Trudell said that “We’re excited to partner with GE Renewable Energy to help Northfield Mountain continue to provide critical flexibility to the New England electric grid. The states are investing huge resources in intermittent renewable energy development and large-scale energy storage facilities like Northfield are crucial to the success of the region.”

    In addition, GE Renewable Energy announced that it had been selected by PG&E to replace a runner and shaft of the first of three 27 MW units. The runners, which are 12 feet in diameter and weigh approximately 25 tons, use a Pelton design. They feature stainless steel material for improved reliability and longevity. The equipment will be delivered in the first quarter of 2021.

    The Caribou hydroelectric station, which was first commissioned in 1921, is one of several projects on the North Fork Feather River and its tributaries that is part of a system that provide hydroelectricity and water storage for irrigation in the Sacramento Valley.

    Final Agreements Signed for Tina River Project

    A series of crucial final agreements have been signed to bring the start of construction closer on the long-awaited Tina River Hydropower Development Project in Solomon Islands. Key commercial agreements signed in Sydney included the On-lending Agreement between the Tina River Hydropower project company and Solomon Islands’ Ministry of Finance & Treasury, as well as agreements related to the funding support from the Asian Development Bank, who confirmed a commitment of USD 30 million to the project. The ADB now joins the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development, the Australian Government, Green Climate Fund and the Korea-EX-IM Economic Development Cooperation Fund, all of whom, alongside World Bank Group, have all committed to supporting this key nation-building project in Solomon Islands.

    Solomon Islands has a near-total reliance on expensive diesel petrol for electricity generation and has among the highest electricity costs in the world at USD 0.82/kW, almost double the average for Pacific Island countries placing a huge burden on families, communities, businesses and government services. Only 16 percent of Solomon Islanders have access to the country’s electricity grid.

    The planned Tina River Hydropower Project, when up and running, is expected to significantly reduce the cost of electricity for Solomon Islanders. It is also expected to dramatically reduce Solomon Islands’ greenhouse gas emissions – and cut Solomon Islands’ reliance on expensive diesel petrol for energy in favor of clean, renewable sources. It is expected to shift Honiara’s grid from 3% renewable in 2017 to 68% at the time the project is commissioned; expected in 2024.
