Banks Lake is a pumped storage project. The hydro reservoir capacity is planned to be 881.939 million cubic meter. The gross head of the project will be 91.44m. The total number of penstocks, pipes or long channels that carry water down from the hydroelectric reservoir to the turbines inside the actual power station, is expected to be 1 in number. The penstock length will be 2,414.02m. The penstock diameter will be 10.668m. The project is expected to generate 769.6 GWh of electricity. The project cost is expected to be around $800m.
The hydro power project consists of 3 units of pump turbines.
The project has 3 electric generators that will be installed at the project site.
The project construction is expected to commence from 2022. Subsequent to that it will enter into commercial operation by 2025.
