The Ingula Pumped Storage Scheme is a 1,333 MW project being developed in the Drakensberg mountain range in South Africa. Knight Piésold completed the project optimization, tender design and procurement. Detailed design and construction supervision of this prestigious development is ongoing and the project is due to be commissioned in late 2013.
The East Toba and Montrose Hydroelectric Project is a 235 MW run-of-river green power development that was identified and permitted by Knight Piésold.
The Kwalsa and Upper Stave Hydroelectric project is a renewable energy development that includes six hydroelectric facilities and interconnecting 138 kV transmission line. The Owner, Contractor, Douglas First Nation and Knight Piésold worked closely together to develop two low impact hydroelectric projects overcoming unique challenges while delivering under budget and ahead of schedule.
The Kalungwishi Hydroelectric Project consists of the 100 MW Kabwelume and 147 MW Kundabwika hydroelectric station sites on the Kalungwishi River in Zambia. Knight Piésold is working as the Owner's Engineer and has supported the client with the overall project optimization and permitting, hydrology and energy generation studies, preliminary engineering design, tender design and negotiations, and site supervision.
The Casecnan Project is a 150 MW hydroelectric project and water transfer scheme in the Phillipines. Knight Piésold worked as the Owner's Engineer and provided services in project optimization, TBM Tunnelling, hydrogeological assessment, geotechnical mapping and rock classification, design reviews and construction supervision, and financing feasibility study.
Wind power has potential to abate costs associated with consumption of diesel, which is either barged of flown into the many remote Alaskan villages. Knight Piésold was retained to investigate the feasibility of renewable resources for electric power in select communities across the Borough.
The Burnstone Gold Project requires a significant amount of electricity to operate resulting in a proposal to upgrade a nearby power station and erect an additional 88kV powerline. Knight Piésold was appointed to undertake environmental work consiting of two Basic Assessment Reports and Environmental Management Plans, as well as an S21 (c) and (i) water use licence.
The Cuervo Hydroelectric project environmental impact study was developed within the current requirements of Chilean legislation and World Bank guidelines. Knight Piésold was involved in developing the Baseline Studies Terms of Reference; preparing environmental baseline documentation; evaluating environmental impacts through the application of mathematical models and / or mapping tools; and active participation in the citizen participation program and permitting process with authorities.
