The Fiji Electricity Authority (FEA) is planning to build a hydropower plant in Fiji.
The project involves the construction of an 18.6MW run-off-river hydropower plant.
It includes the construction of a 62m high concrete gravity dam, a 2.3km tunnel, a 2.25m diameter penstock, a penstock of length 225m conveys the water to a power station located at the side of the Korolevu Reservoir.
In 2009, MWH Global Inc. (MWH) began revising the project, after the initial feasibility study, conducted jointly with Hadarivatu in 2003.
In March 2011, MWH presented the technical and economic feasibility of the project to Fiji Electricity Authority.
In March 23, 2013, FEA invited an Expression of Interest (EOI) for independent power producers with May 17, 2013 as the submission deadline. Under the terms, IPP's are set to invest in the projects and then sign up a power purchase agreement with FEA – to sell electricity to FEA for the next twenty years.
Geotech Ground Engineering Ltd has been appointed as geotechnical consultant for tunnelling.
