Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Current plant construction may be adjusted Saturday, October LETHBRIDGE HERALD-25 B.C. Hydro considers environment need VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority is changing its approach to environmental problems associated with new power plants and transmis- sion lines but in most cases is committed for the next decade to projects already in the works. The provincially owned power utility now is consider- ing what money will go into future budgets for en- vironmental studies on pro- jects which will supply electrical power in the 1980s. This doesn't mean that pro- jects built in the near future will escape environmental scrutiny. But it does mean that most of them will have to proceed as planned, perhaps with adjustments to some aspects to overcome en- vironmental objections. They will have to proceed, that is. if Hydro is to meet its responsibilities for growing power demands, according to officials of the utility. Hydro's generating capaci- ty as of March was 359 megawatts (mw) a megawatt is kilowatts and its power sold was 19.1 billion kilowatt hours By 1980, the load is forecast to grow to 42.6 billion kwh with mw of capacity needed to provide it. CONSTRUCTION In interviews, B.C. Hydro officials outlined what pro- jects now are under construc- tion, those being studied and how the utility has started en- vironmental studies. In earlier years, Hydro was subject to criticism for its methods of deciding where new plants, substations and transmission lines would be located. Lately, even before the elec- tion of the NDP government in August, 1972, its manage- ment was taking a new look at environmental problems. "It wasn't so long ago that Hydro considered only engineering and economics. Now the third E for environ- ment has been says Charles W. Nash, assistant general manager of ad- ministration and finance.

"When we add in the costs for environmental con- siderations, it's not going to be as little as some people says Dr. Harry Ellis, manager of the engineering division. Due to to produce this year are two gas turbines, one of 40 mw capacity near Port Hardy and a second of 28 mw at Prince Rupert. Gas turbines can burn any fuel to create a blast of hot air to turn the generators. For these two the fuel will be oil. In 1974. the schedule calls for the ninth generator at the Peace River project. 275 mw: a sixth generator at the Burrard thermal plant at Port Moody near Vancouver, 150 mw: and a second gas turbine at Prince Rupert, 28 mw. For 1975, a second gas tur- bine is planned at Port Hardy. 40 mw; and the first two hydro units at Kootenay Canal near Nelson. 250 mw. CABLES New cables to Vancouver Island will increease the capacity there by 175 mw in 1976, with the second two units at Kootenay Canal, 250 mw. and the first two at Mica Creek, north of Revelstoke. 800 mw. In 1977. two more units are scheduled for Mica Creek, 800 mw. While the cables to Van- couver will be laid in 1976. only part of them giving 175 mw of capacity will be used that year. The other 175 along with the necessary terminal equipment, will be in service in 1978. These new cables will handle the Vancouver Island requirements until 1980. On the Mainland, new capacity will be needed in the system by 1979 meaning that decisions on some pro- jects will be needed fairly soon to allow for construction. On Vancouver Island, federal and provincial fisheries departments are studying the Campbell River system to see if additional generating capacity can be added. Hydro and fisheries experts .are also examining generation possibilities on the Kokish River on the island. ISLAND SUPPLY Dr. Ellis says determining how power will be supplied to Vancouver Island after 1980 is the key to how the rest of Hydro's system will be developed. He doesn't anticipate that it will be answered by installa- tion of nuclear power, so that brings it back to deciding between thermal generation or more transmission cables, overhead or underwater. For the mainland, the pre- sent studies involve sites on the Peace and Columbia Rivers where there has already been extensive development. On the Peace, further con- sideration is being given to a site about 10 miles downstream from the W. A. C. Bennett Dam where a re- regulating dam and powerhouse could take advan- tage of the massive storage capacity of Lake Williston. Final determination about the site and completion of the Peace generation station awaits a re-examination of proposals to divert the McGregor River, a part of the Fraser River system, back through the Peace system. Herald- Business Imperial reduces Mackenzie program INUVIK. N.W.T. (CP) Imperial Oil Ltd. will reduce its ex- ploration program in the Mackenzie Delta this winter. Gordon William of Calgary, the company's frontier operations manager, said this week. Imperial Oil, which had six rigs in the Delta last year, will operate with four this year. Mr. William said the decision was made for several reasons, including a poor drilling success rate. Imperial Oil was reassessing its Delta program and studying data collected from drilling and seismic work in hopes of higher success in the future. The Imperial Oil slowdown will be offset to some degree by Gulf Oil, which plans to increase by one to three.
