    GE Renewable Energy to Support Clean Energy Growth in Philippines

    GE Renewable Energy booked a contract with Angat Hydropower Corporation to rehabilitate the 218 MW Angat hydropower plant located in the Philippines. This 53-year-old Angat hydropower facility supplies more than 90% of Metro Manila’s potable water needs and supports the irrigation of 25,000 hectares of farmlands in Bulacan and Pampanga. This contract is the first major rehabilitation program since the facility was commissioned in 1967. GE Renewable Energy’s hydro teams in Europe and the Americas will be responsible for the supply of two new 50 MW Francis turbines, four new 50 MW generators as well as three new upgraded auxiliary turbines and generators. They will be in charge of the assessment of the penstock, the powerhouse and a new control system will also be provided. GE Renewable Energy will work closely with a local partner, Desco, that will install and commission the Angat plant.

    This rehabilitation will be conducted in the best conditions for the customer to limit a power outage of the plant as much as possible, a crucial pre-requisite for Angat Hydropower Corporation as the dam plays a strategic role for the country. Once fully upgraded in 2023, the power output of the plant will be increased by around 4 % bringing it to 226.6 MW. This rehabilitated plant will provide an additional and reliable source of electricity in the Philippines and secure water needs for the population.

    Construction of Kaptis Hydropower Project in Kenya to Start

    Kenya is soon to commence construction of Kaptis hydropower project. A joint development agreement, to bring the project through to financial close and construction in 2020, has been signed between the project owner and an equity fund manager. The agreement was signed between project developer, Tembo Power with Metier, an independently owned private equity fund manager, together with its partner WK Construction, a leading contractor in the field of hydropower in sub-Saharan Africa.

    The deal allows the partners to appoint lenders and prepare for financial closing, expected this year, and to start construction. The 14.7MW hydropower project is located in western Kenya.

    Tembo Power began development of the Kaptis hydroelectric project in 2013, following preliminary studies conducted by its partner Humphrey Mulindi. The purpose of the study was to determine the real potential of the site selected for the future hydroelectric power plant.

    The engineering, procurement and construction contract for the future hydroelectric power plant will be executed by WK Construction, a company specialized in hydraulics. This company, based in South Africa, is one of the financial partners of the project, in which it holds a 20% stake. Metier, now holds a 40% stake. The South African-based financial company has decided to place this investment within the framework of its Metier Sustainable Capital International Fund II. It is a fund that targets investments offering social and environmental benefits as well as financial returns. The remaining 40% will be owned by Tembo Power.

    SIMEC Kinlochleven Hydro Electric Power Station Increases Generation

    GFG Alliance’s international energy business firm SIMEC announced that its Kinlochleven hydro electric power station has increased generation to its highest level for nearly 20 years following a recent upgrade to capacity. Kinlochleven, which was acquired by SIMEC in 2016 and is located on the JAHAMA Highland Estate lands, last week generated an average of 23.27MW of clean green power – producing sufficient electricity to power a city the size of Inverness. The increase, to the highest output since 2002, follows the first phase of a significant investment programme undertaken by SIMEC to reinstate defunct side-stream intakes and improve the efficiency of water collection on the hydro scheme. The outcome represents a step-up in clean energy to help power Scottish homes and industry.

    SIMEC was previously accredited to produce 19.5 MW of power under the Scottish Government’s Renewable Obligation scheme. Legislative changes to the Government’s scheme have made it economic to increase capacity above this level at Kinlochleven.

    Kinlochleven was the first major hydro-electric project in Britain, built between 1905 and 1909. The scheme harnasses water power from the Black Water chain of lochs through a 13km reservoir. The Blackwater dam, which serves Kinlochleven, is the longest in the Scottish Highlands.

    SIMEC also owns the nearby Lochaber hydro station, which produces power for ALVANCE British Aluminium, the only smelter remaining in the UK.

    Penstock Pipeline Bursts at Uhl Hydro Project in HP

    Media reported that about 30 engineers and employees working at operationalizing a new turbine at the Uhal Stage III hydropower project in Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh had a miraculous escape when the feeder penstock pipeline burst and flooded the hydropower station. On Saturday night when the engineers were working on the heavy machinery, there was a sudden blast in the penstock pipeline and it burst. It took a 6 hour rescue operation to rescue the 20 engineers and employees who were working at the station when the accident occurred. The accident occurred when the engineers were testing the installation of a 33.3 MW new turbine at the plant when the generation was increased to 16 MW. The load of machinery was to be increased up to 32 MW but the penstock could not sustain the water pressure. The powerhouse now contains debris that must be cleared out, and commissioning will be delayed

    The Uhl hydropower project is owned and operated by the HP State Electricity Board.

    Snowy Hydro 2.0 Exapnsion Approved by NSW

    New South Wales has approved a 2,000MW expansion of its 4,100MW Snowy hydropower scheme, in a move that could pressure demand for electricity from gas-fired plants. The project still requires approval from Australia's federal government. The hydropower plant, known as Snowy 2.0, is a key part of the Integrated System Plan blueprint to reduce the emissions intensity of Australia's power network as part of efforts to lower greenhouse gas emissions under the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

    The Snowy 2.0 project could put pressure on gas-fired plants, which have increasingly provided firming power in eastern Australia's National Electricity Market to back up renewable energy. Around 67pc of electricity in the NEM was generated from coal-fired plants over the past 12 months, while renewables provided 25pc and the remaining 8pc came from gas.

    Snowy 2.0 involves the construction of a pumped-hydropower station that will be about 800m underground and around 240m long. The project will add 350GWh of energy storage and 2,000 MW of generation capacity and play a major role in the NEM by facilitating the development of renewable energy,

    A new transmission link between NSW and Victoria state is proposed to take power from Snowy 2.0 into other parts of the NEM.

    Egypte en Ethiopië vliegen elkaar in de haren om mega-dam in de Nijl

    RTL Nieuws 15 uur geleden

    Ethiopië is bezig met het bouwen van een gigantische dam aan de voet van de Nijl. Egypte is bang dat het daardoor te maken krijgt met een watertekort. Daarover zijn de landen nu een propagandaoorlog begonnen die misschien wel uitloopt op een echte oorlog. Wie heeft recht op de rivier?

    Ethiopië werkt al sinds 2011 aan de bouw van de dam. Het moet de grootste dam worden in heel Afrika, de nationale trots van Ethiopië. De droom van de Ethiopiërs is dat de dam miljoenen in het land van stroom kan voorzien. In een land waar maar 45 procent van de bevolking toegang heeft tot elektriciteit, is dat een grote sprong voorwaarts.
    Het zou het land daarnaast ook een economische boost kunnen geven. Met zo'n dam wordt Ethiopië de grootste energie-exporteur van Afrika.

    Desastreuze gevolgen
    Voor Egypte is het een nachtmerrie. Het land van 100 miljoen inwoners is volledig afhankelijk van de Nijl voor drinkwater en landbouw: buiten het deltagebied van de Nijl bestaat Egypte alleen maar uit woestijn. Een afname van water in de Nijl zou desastreuze gevolgen hebben voor het land.

    Hongersnood ligt dan op de loer.
    Egypte zet daarom alles op alles om het Nijlwater veilig te stellen. De landen proberen het eens te worden over hoe snel Ethiopië het waterreservoir achter de dam mag vullen. Ethiopië wil dit binnen vier jaar voor elkaar hebben, maar Egypte hoopt op een periode van twaalf jaar en misschien wel langer – in dat geval zou er alsnog genoeg water doorstromen voor Egypte.

    In beide landen verhardt nu de taal rond de dam. De Egyptische president Al-Sisi beweert dat voor Egypte de Nijl een 'kwestie van bestaan is'. Egypte voert de propagandaoorlog nu op met een gelikt Engelstalig filmpje, bedoeld voor een internationaal publiek. Daarin verwijst Egypte naar de rijke geschiedenis van het land en hoe de Nijl de bron van zijn bestaan was.

    Maar Ethiopië slaat terug. De Ethiopische premier Abiy Ahmad maakte eerder duidelijk dat 'geen macht in de wereld' zijn land kan tegenhouden in het vullen van het damreservoir. Het komt zelf ook met een Engelstalig propagandaspotje: Ethiopia speaks ('Ethiopië spreekt'). Daarin maakt het land duidelijk niet te zullen buigen voor buitenlandse druk.

    Klaar voor de strijd
    De grote vraag is nu of de landen het eens kunnen worden over de verdeling van het water. Zo niet, dan kan de wereld te maken krijgen met de eerste moderne 'wateroorlog'. Egypte heeft al eerder gewaarschuwd dat het bereid is de wapens op te pakken voor de Nijl. In antwoord daarop zegt Ethiopië dat miljoenen Ethiopiërs klaar zijn voor de strijd.

    De spanningen bereikten afgelopen week een nieuw hoogtepunt toen Ethiopië, gefrustreerd door mislukte onderhandelingen, besloot te beginnen met het vullen van de dam. Het buurland Soedan wist dit op het laatste moment te voorkomen en heeft Ethiopië en Egypte weer rond de tafel gekregen.

    Tussen twee vuren
    Ook Soedan heeft belang bij een overeenkomst. Net als Egypte is Soedan voor een groot deel afhankelijk van de Nijl, maar als buurland bevindt het zich, in het geval van oorlog, tussen twee vuren. Soedan heeft de afgelopen maand al te maken gehad met sporadische aanvallen door Ethiopische troepen op de grens. Een oorlog zou voor het land rampzalig zijn. Ethiopië heeft nu toegezegd het opvullen van de dam uit te stellen, maar het is niet gezegd dat daarmee een overeenkomst dichterbij komt.

    GE Renewable Energy & Walcha Energy to Accelerate 500MW Pumped Hydro Storage Project in Australia

    ge-renewable-energy-walcha-energy_10589.jpg Image Source: GE Renewable Energy Walcha Energy

    GE Renewable Energy and Walcha Energy have signed an agreement to jointly develop the 500MW Dungowan pumped hydro storage project in the New England Renewable Energy Zone in New South Wales in Australia. Under the agreement, GE Renewable Energy’s Hydro Solutions business will provide Walcha Energy with technical and commercial support to accelerate the development of the Dungowan pumped hydro storage power plant which plays a pivotal role in the energy transition for New South Wales and Australia.

    Overall, the Walcha Energy Project has the potential to produce more than 4 GW of stable electricity from renewable sources. The Dungowan pumped hydro storage power plant is intended to anchor the broader development and ensure that the additional wind and solar resources can be reliably and safely fed into the grid. Hydropower plays a decisive role in the energy transition. Already today, 95% of all stored energy in the world is provided by hydro storage. Its storage capacity is up to 100 times higher than that of any available battery solution. Above all, however, hydropower guarantees the necessary balance and stability of the grid. With intermittent renewables, it is no longer possible to turn on or off generation nor to adjust their power output at the request of power grid operators. Hydropower is a key contributor to frequency response thanks to its flexibility in operation and ability to increase or decrease its active power. In addition, hydropower is the only renewable energy source providing inertia to the Grid.

    The New England REZ is one of the largest renewable energy zones in Australia and has been designated as a strategic priority by the NSW Government. The Walcha Energy project has the potential to provide up to 15% of NSW’s power requirements. The Dungowan pumped hydro storage power plant would provide about 2% of that power, enough to supply roughly 125,000 households with electricity.

    Drieklovendam staat onder druk door hevige regenval in China 2 uur geleden

    Doordat het al maandenlang hevig regent in het midden en zuiden van China, bereikt de Drieklovendam in de rivier Jangtsekiang zijn maximale capaciteit.

    De Jangtsekiang is met ruim 6.300 kilometer de langste rivier van Azië. Ze loopt van het Tibetaanse hoogland in Midden-China via Chongquing, Wuhan en Manjing naar Sjanghai en mondt uit in de Zuid-Chinese Zee. Veel zijrivieren voeden de hoofdstroom.

    Om de rivier te temmen, heeft China in de loop der tijd diverse dammen geplaatst om overstromingen tegen te gaan, het omliggende land te irrigeren en elektriciteit op te wekken.

    Door de constante regenval kunnen de dammen het water niet meer afvoeren en stromen de stuwmeren vol. Het meer van de Drieklovendam in de Chinese provincie Hubei is 60 kilometer lang en kan 1.120 meter breed worden. Binnen een maand is het waterpeil van 155 naar 165 meter gestegen. De maximale hoogte dat het meer kan bereiken, is 175 meter boven zeeniveau.

    Niveau stuwmeer is in één maand tijd 10 meter gestegen
    De Drieklovendam laat momenteel ruim 49 miljoen liter water per seconde door, de grootste hoeveelheid sinds de opening, terwijl er aan de bovenkant 75 miljoen liter per seconde het meer instroomt. De 2,3 kilometer lange dam kan tot zo'n 98 miljoen liter water per seconde doorlaten naar het stroomgebied dat 110 meter lager ligt, maar dan moeten alle 55 gaten openstaan. Dat is tot op heden niet gebeurd, omdat dan de lagergelegen gebieden te maken krijgen met catastrofale overstromingen.

    De Drieklovendam werd in 2006 in gebruik genomen en is de grootste waterkrachtcentrale ter wereld. De Chinese overheid verzekert de bevolking dat de dam de waterdruk kan houden.

    Ergste overstromingen sinds 1981
    De overstromingen, die het gevolg zijn van de regenval, zijn nu al de ergste sinds 1981, toen anderhalf miljoen mensen dakloos werden door het water. In juli zijn door de hevige regenval al zeker ruim vijf miljoen mensen getroffen door wateroverlast. Ruim 400.000 mensen zijn toen geëvacueerd.

    In de provincie Sichuan, stroomopwaarts van de Drieklovendam, zijn vanwege de overstromingen inmiddels 100.000 mensen in veiligheid gebracht. Vrijwilligers proberen uit alle macht om de Grote Boeddha van Leshan te beschermen. Het 71 meter hoge beeld dat tijdens de Tang-dynastie (rond 800) is gebouwd, staat momenteel met zijn tenen in het water. Dat is sinds 1949 niet meer gebeurd.
