The Narrows Inlet Hydro Facility is located at the northern end of the Narrows Inlet, in the Tzoonie River Valley. The facility is owned by tems sayamkwu Limited Partnership, a partnership between the shíshálh Nation and BluEarth Renewables. The system consists of 3 separate powerhouses that generate a total of 33 megawatts.
DENT delivered full EPC services for the civil scope of the project, this included the design and construction of intakes, powerhouses, installation steel penstocks, and development of fish conservation ponds. In addition, DENT also developed the access and laydown area for the Upper Ramona Portal that required excavation of 40,000 cubic meters of rock. DENT also constructed the portal plug via the application of 500 cubic meters of shotcrete and concrete 830 meters below ground surface.
The Narrows Inlet project was a great show case of our ability to deliver complex, large-scale projects that require expertise across the various disciplines with heavy civil construction.
