The proposed project would be integrated into the Corps' existing dam spillway and consist of the following: (1) A yet undetermined size concrete pad to be built just upstream of the spillway, supporting a frame module containing 10 turbines; (2) a 120-foot-long, 50-foot-deep frame module fitted with a trash rack and containing 10 low-head bulb turbines each having a capacity of 500 kilowatts (kW) for a total installed capacity of 5,000 kW; (3) a 200-foot-long, 120-foot-wide tailrace; (4) a yet undetermined number of draft tubes that would be incorporated into the spillway; (5) a switchyard constructed adjacent to the modular system; (6) a 1.3-mile-long, 36.7-kilovolt transmission line conveying the generated power to the local power grid; and (7) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the Lock and Dam No. 12 Project would be 28,470 megawatt hours.
