Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Waterpower '89


This paper describes the licensing, environmental, engineering, and design aspects of the project. Due to the project's remote location and geological setting, the paper will delineate certain unique conditions and their solutions. The project development includes construction of a 135-ft high concrete faced rockfilled dam; a 3.6-mile lined power tunnel and a sea level powerhouse containing two 63-MVA turbine-generators. Two 20-mile parallel 115-kV transmission lines connect the powerhouse substation to the Kenai Peninsula and Alaska Railbelt transmission system. To support the project construction eleven miles of access roads, barge dock, airstrip, construction camp and permanent housing facilities were constructed within the project boundary.
