AECOM’s energy practice provided engineering services for the C$2-billion LG-1 hydroelectric powerhouse.
The 1368 MW powerhouse includes two gravity dams, a spillway and two dikes. Due to the occurrence of sensitive clays in the area, the location of the LG-1 run-of-the-river powerhouse required numerous geotechnical investigations.
AECOM provided the following services:
- Preliminary studies
- Detailed engineering for water intakes, spillway, powerhouse and dikes
- Technical support during construction and commissioning
- Operation manual.
