  • Alcoa finalizes deal for 378-MW Tapoco hydropower lot

    Alcoa Power Generating Inc. has finalized a US$600 million deal that transfers ownership of its 378-MW Tapoco hydroelectric project to Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners.

    Tapoco includes four separate hydroelectric facilities located on the Little Tennessee and Cheoah Rivers in eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina.

    The deal includes 86 miles of transmission line, 14,500 acres of land, and four generating stations and dams, including the Cheoah, Calderwood, Chilowee and Santeelah.

    The plants were originally constructed by Alcoa between 1919 and 1957 to provide power for aluminum smelting and rolling mill operations.

    HydroWorld.com reported in October that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission had approved the license transfer to Brookfield.
