Hydroelectric Power Plants

In addition to hydroelectric dams, Itasca has worked on hydroelectric power plants including a pumped storage plant in Israel (Gavet) and hydropower stations in China (Baihetan, JinPing), India, and Colombia (Guavio and Sogamoso). Engineering analyses include site characterization, review of in-situ stress measurements, ground support evaluation and recommendation, excavation stability of large caverns during prefeasibility and construction, and underground facility layout design, including surge chamber geometry.
