    EDF’s La Coche Hydro Savoie Plant Inaugurated

    The new La Coche power plant Savoie was inaugurated by Jean-Bernard Levy, the EDF Group’s Chairman and Chief Executive. The new plant will increase the total capacity of the La Coche pumped-storage hydro facility by 20%. Amounting to 150 million Euros in capital expenditure, this investment confirms the Group’s commitment to the development of hydro power, which is the world’s main source of renewable energy whilst accounting for 12.4% of France’s electrical output. The commissioning of this new facility, combined with upgrades being made to the existing pumped-storage plant, is also helping to further develop electrical power storage technologies, an area which is being strongly supported by the EDF Group via its Storage Plan.

    The second biggest hydro project in France after the one currently underway at Romanche-Gavet (Isere), this new facility features France’s most powerful Pelton wheel (240 MW). It comes in addition to La Coche’s underground power plant, which is already in operation. Commissioned in 1976, this pumped-storage plant pumps water from the Aigueblanche dam towards the La Coche impoundment, where it stores energy that is constantly available to meet demand spikes. It therefore plays a strategic role in balancing the power grid, more specifically supporting the integration of variable renewable-energy sources.

    With this new plant, La Coche’s hydro facilities will now generate as much power as that annually used by 270 000 inhabitants (tantamount to the size of a city like Strasbourg) thanks to a renewable, flexible and storable energy source.

    Of the 150 million Euros spent on this asset, 84 million Euros have gone towards supporting regional businesses including nearly 30 million Euros for Savoie. 500 local jobs have been created or maintained in the region thanks to project-related investments whilst 11 jobs have been created to support labour-market integration.

    Edevu Hydro Project to be Completed by the end of 2020

    The K500 million Edevu hydro power project at Brown River in the Kairuku-Hiri district of Central Province is expected to be completed at the end of 2020. Two Chinese hydro power construction companies (the China Gezhouba Group Corporation and East Vision Group of China) are backing up the project after being stalled for almost a year since its launching in 2017.

    According to the initiator and project developer, PNG Hydro Power Limited managing director Allan Gua, the project had been stalled while waiting for the State to guarantee trust and confidence to financiers of the project.

    The initial part of the project, which is the diversion tunnel, has been completed and was commissioned on Monday to pave way for the developers to build the 70m hydro dam. According to technical persons on the ground, the tunnel is 500 meters long where the river (the Brown River) will be channeled through when the power turbines are set.

    The hydro will be producing 50 megawatts coming from two power hydro machines that will be set up to produce 25 megawatts each.

    ADB to provide fund for Hydropower Plant in Nepal

    The Asian Development Bank has signed a USD 60 million financing package with Nepal Water and Energy Development Company Private Limited to help build and operate a 216 MW run of the river hydropower plant on the Trishuli River near the capital, Kathmandu. The financing comprises a loan from ADB and a loan from the ADB-administered Canadian Climate Fund for the Private Sector in Asia II. CFPS II was established by the Government of Canada to encourage private investment in climate change mitigation and adaptation projects in Asia and the Pacific. CFPS II funding was integral to the project’s financial viability as it helped attract private capital currently unavailable in the market.

    ADB is cofinancing the project with other multilateral development banks and development finance institutions including the International Finance Corporation; Export–Import Bank of Korea; Korea Development Bank; Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank; Commonwealth Development Corporation; Nederlandse Financierings-Maatschappij Voor Ontwikkelingslanden N.V.; OPEC Fund for International Development; and Société de Promotion et de Participation pour la Coopération Economique S.A.

    Once operational, the plant is expected to provide over 1,200 gigawatt-hours of clean electricity annually to the national grid. The project is aligned with ADB’s operational priorities outlined in Strategy 2030, notably to eradicate remaining poverty; reduce inequalities; tackle climate change; build climate and disaster resilience; and enhance environmental sustainability.

    Hydropower GHG Emissions Higher than Facilities Burning Fossil Fuels

    On the whole, while hydroelectricity is certainly a cleaner energy production method compared to fossil fuels, findings from a new study published in the ACS’ journal Environmental Science & Technology say that some hydropower facilities emit more greenhouse gas emissions than those burning fossil fuels. The reason is that the climate impact of facilities that generate electricity from water varies across the world and over time. The amount of hydropower GHG emissions can go up or down depending on what is occurring in the surrounding landscapes. For instance, changes in carbon dioxide emissions occur when natural landscapes are flooded to generate reservoirs for hydropower plants. Additionally, there is near-term warming from associated methane emissions.

    Discovering that the majority of studies regarding hydropower’s climate impact have neglected specific factors, researchers Ilissa Ocko and Steven Hambrug decided to conduct a more in-depth analysis of the climate impacts that these alternative energy facilities can have over time. The researchers looked at 1,473 hydroelectric facilities in 104 countries and analysed the climate impacts over time of methane and carbon dioxide emissions. Additionally, they estimated emissions resulting from flooding the reservoir. They learned that emissions from hydropower were, on average, far higher and worse for the environment than emissions from solar, wind and nuclear power installations. However, they were better for the climate compared to emission from natural gas and coal utilities.

    That being said, there were some cases where certain hydroelectric plants were worse for the climate than coal and natural gas, both now and in the long term. The reason is that these facilities had high methane emissions, which have a large impact on global warming.

    Additionally, the researchers learned that emissions varied by region. For example, while in Western Europe new hydroelectric facilities had near-zero climate impacts, those in Western Africa were worse for the climate than natural gas and coal plant over all timescales. The researchers believe that their findings should be considered when developing and building new hydroelectric plants.

    BC Hydro John Hart Hydropower Project in Canada Revamped

    The first public-private partnership project in the hydropower sector in Canada houses a brand new underground powerhouse built to minimise the environmental footprint and offer higher safety in case of a seismic event. Located beside Elk Falls Provincial Park in Campbell River, British Columbia, the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project was initiated in 2007 to achieve three project objectives reliability, safety from seismic events, and protection of downstream fish habitat from unplanned water flow events.

    Built in 1947, John Hart Generating Station was aging and needed to be replaced. The existing facility and penstocks were unlikely to withstand a moderate earthquake and the generating station was in a poor condition, leading to declining electricity output. Ninety-five percent of the lower Campbell River comes out of the John Hart Generating Station, which means that a new, more efficient, and more reliable facility was needed, including a new water bypass to ensure that if up to three of the new generators go offline, water flow can be maintained, protecting fish and fish habitat.

    SNC-Lavalin created a special purpose general partnership InPower BC to enter a P3 Project Agreement with Canadian electric utility BC Hydro to partially finance, design, and build a new generating facility and maintain it for 15 years. The team included several sub-contractors including ASLJV, Aecon SNC Lavalin Joint Venture, GE Renewable Energy, Frontier Kemper Constructors Inc, Archie Johnstone Plumbing & Heating Ltd, Co-Gen Mechanical Services Ltd, F&M Installations Ltd and Viking Fire Protection Inc.

    Partially financed by InPower BC, the CAD 1.093 billion project was the largest infrastructure project undertaken by BC Hydro since the 1980s, although the recent Site C Project is now the largest. The request for proposals from BC Hydro was issued in 2012, and the P3 design and construction contract was awarded in February 2014 with construction starting soon after. Several comparative assessments were conducted on alternative schemes during the initial phases of the proposal stage, convincing BC Hydro to include an underground powerhouse as part of the contractor-proposed scheme. The utility’s original intent was to have a surface powerhouse, which would have necessitated an extensive steel lined section of the underground power tunnel.

    NEA Announces More Limits for Small Hydropower Plants in China

    China's National Energy Administration announced that China will ban the construction of small hydropower plants in regions that already have an electricity surplus and encourage new dams in poor and remote locations with little grid access. NEA said “The draft rules aim to promote the orderly development of the hydropower sector after decades of rampant and poorly planned capacity growth. Small hydro plants would be banned in forest parks, scenic spots, habitats for rare fish and other ecologically fragile zones. It would also be restricted in regions where large amounts of power are wasted because of limited access to the grid.”

    China's hydropower sector is a major source of clean energy, with a capacity of about 350 GW or around 18% of the country's total. A third of the hydropower is classified as small, meaning plants with less than 50 MW of capacity. China started demolishing hundreds of small dams throughout the country last year to restore water flows and comply with new rules banning industrial development in nature reserves. The campaign came after an investigation showed there were at least 24,100 small hydropower plants along the Yangtze river and its tributaries, many causing severe environmental damage.

    Bui Power Micro Hydropower Plant Starts in Ghana

    The Bui Power Authority has announced the completion of the 45kW Tsatsadu generating station in Ghana’s Volta region, the first micro hydropower plant in the country. Located at the Tsatsadu Waterfalls in the Hohoe District, the plant has the potential to add a further 45kW in the future. The run-of-river scheme consists of a concrete diversion weir, an intake structure, diversion channel, a forebay, 300mm diameter steel penstock, a powerhouse and a transmission line..

    In 2005 Ghana’s Ministry of Energy entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization and International Network on Small Hydro Power of China to undertake studies to develop the existing small hydro power potentials in the country. The Tsatsadu Waterfalls, located at Alavanyo Abehenease in the Hohoe District of the Volta Region, was selected to be developed as a pilot project. UNIDO subsequently donated a 30kW Turgo Turbine and associated electromechanical equipment for the project. The Ministry of Energy appointed the Bui Power Authority in 2016 to develop the project on its behalf. BPA then reviewed all available information on the project. This included site assessment surveys, detailed topographical surveys and the development of engineering drawings for the project.

    The electromechanical equipment donated by UNIDO were retrieved from the Volta River Authority and serviced. The project, which was initially designed as a 30kW stand-alone system, was upgraded to a 45kW grid-connection system. A new 45kW capacity A-synchronous generator and new load controller were therefore procured to replace the existing 30kW generator and load controller.

    Batang Toru Hydropower Project in Indonesia Halts Work Over Coronavirus

    The Jakarta Post reported that the development of the Batang Toru hydropower plant PLTA in South Tapanuli regency in North Sumatra in Indonesia has been temporarily shut down as workers from mainland China are unable to fly to the country amid a travel ban implemented by the government over fears of the Covid-19 outbreak. The company that will operate the plant, PT North Sumatra Hydro Energy said it had suspended the construction project in August last year after Chinese technical workers from contractor Sinohydro were terminated because they were unable to properly carry out their duties.

    PT North Sumatra Hydro Energy senior advisor Ms Emmy Hafild said the company had arranged for 125 replacement workers, but they were unable to reach the Batang Toru project site because of the travel ban. Ms Emmy told The Jakarta Post “We don’t know when the Batang Toru project can continue as it depends on when the government will lift the travel ban to and from mainland China.”

    She said “The company had so far been working on tunnelling for the project, which was mainly handled by Chinese workers. Therefore the absence of Chinese workers had disrupted the current stage of construction. We hope to complete the Batang Toru project by 2022. But seeing the current conditions, we are certain that we will miss the target.”
