A 10 km tunnel under the Niagara Falls has been drilled to increase the output of the hydropower plant, Sir Adam Beck Generating Station, in Ontario, Canada.

By Renewable Energy Focus staff

The extension project, which is expected to be finished in 2013, will increase the flow of water by 500 m3/sec and could increase hydropower output by 1.6 TWh.

“Niagara Falls is not only the Honeymoon Capital of Canada, but a hub for clean energy. This project has attracted CA&1 billion in new investment and created hundreds of new jobs in our community,” says Kim Craitor, MPP Niagara Falls.
