Sweetwater Pumped Storage is a pumped storage project. The hydro reservoir capacity is planned to be 13.59 million cubic meter. 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 1,975.1m. The penstock diameter will be 7.62m. The project is expected to generate 1,051.2 GWh of electricity.
The hydro power project consists of 3 turbines, each with 200MW nameplate capacity.
The project has 3 electric generators that will be installed at the project site.
The project construction is expected to commence from 2026. Subsequent to that it will enter into commercial operation by 2030.
