Summary

Moriah Hydro Corporation (Moriah Hydro), a subsidiary of Albany Engineering Corporation, is planning to undertake the development of a hydroelectric power plant in Essex County, New York, the US.

The project involves the construction of a 240MW underground pumped storage hydroelectric facility with a capacity to produce 737million kWh of electricity per annum.

The project includes the construction of a new 115-kV substation, an upper reservoir with a surface area of 16187m2 with a storage capacity of 3millionm3, lower reservoir with a surface area of 20639m2 with a storage capacity of 3millionm3, 4.2m diameter and 913m long upper reservoir shaft connecting the upper reservoir to the high-pressure penstock located below the powerhouse chamber floor, 4.2m diameter and 913m long lower reservoir shaft connecting the lower reservoir and the lower reservoir ventilation tunnel, two 1.8m diameter emergency evacuation shafts located between the powerhouse chamber and the electrical equipment chamber, 7.6m diameter main shaft extending 913m from the surface down to the powerhouse chamber, 4.6m diameter high- and low-pressure steel penstocks embedded beneath the powerhouse chamber floor, 97.5m long and 24.4m wide powerhouse chamber, containing 100 reversible pump-turbine units, each with a nameplate generating capacity of 2.4 MW, 83.5m long and 11m wide underground electrical equipment chamber adjacent to the powerhouse chamber, an inclined electrical tunnel connecting the electrical equipment chamber to a new 115-kV substation constructed adjacent to an existing single circuit 115-kV transmission line, a switch yard and other related facilities, installation of transformers and generators, and the laying of transmission lines.

On October 4, 2013, Moriah Hydro filled a draft hydropower license application seeking Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval for the pumped-storage project.

In February 2015, Moriah Hydro filed a final license application with FERC.

On October 4, 2016, FERC issued a notice of the final license application with a deadline for filing motions to intervene and protests until December 4, 2016.

Moriah Hydro and FERC will conduct an environmental site review on December 8, 2016.
