CURRENT PROJECTSLPS is deploying its proprietary hydropower, tidal, and wave energy technologies in several projects it is overseeing across the USA.
Schuyler VA: Walker Mill Dam
750kW power-up of non-powered-dam. LPS is installing 2x375kW Reakt turbines, a control suite, and a modular intake system.
Troy NC: Little River Hydro
250kW site upgrade: project involves providing and installing one Reakt-32 turbine system to (i) upgrade the site from 450kW to 700kW in capacity, and (ii) improve plant capacity factor from 35% to 55%.
Franklin WV: McCoy Mill Hydro
McCoy Mill is a greenfield microhydro project, with a capacity of 40kW. It is a behind-the-meter installation supplying renewable energy to nearby Future Generations University. Turbomachinery will consist of a single LPS Reakt-18 unit.
Leeds NY: Mill Pond Hydro
500 kW run-of-river site upgrade. The project entails removal of an old nonfunctional Francis turbine and installing one LPS Reakt-40 turbine, as well as performing numerous site upgrades. The new unit and controls system will allow the plant to operate much more efficiently at partial flows, simultaneously maximizing revenue and simplifying the owner’s relicensing process.
Hot Springs VA: Falling Springs Hydro
Alleghany County VA: the project entails bringing an old decommissioned hydropower station back online with a LPS’s fish-friendly modular intake and a 500kW LPS TorrStrøm impulse turbine and controls system. The new equipment will simplify operation while allowing compliance with the stringent environmental requirements in effect at one of the best-preserved areas of natural beauty in the eastern USA.
Carbondale CO: municipal wastewater plant
We are providing and installing one 50 kW LPS TorrStrom impulse turbine on a pressure relief valve at the municipal water-treatment plant in Carbondale, CO.
Olcott NY: Burt Dam
An LPS modular intake structure and upgraded control system will return a 600kW small hydropower plant to service.
Angoon AK: KITEP
Kootznahoo Inlet Tidal Energy Project (FERC P-15110-000): LPS will install its in-current hydrokinetic equipment in an energetic tidal strait in SE Alaska, to power up an islanded Native American community currently powered by costly diesel fuel. Testing is being carried out under a current ARPA-e award.
Newport OR: PacWave South
LPS will deploy its NeuralWEC AI-enhanced wave energy conversion system at PacWave South, seven miles off the coast of Newport OR in 70 meters of water.
Haysi VA: Tivis Branch Hydro
1.2MW powering-up of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-maintained John W. Flannagan dam, a non-powered flood control dam on the Tivis Branch of the Pound River. Turbomachinery package consists of four 300kW LPS TorrStrøm impulse turbine and associated controls package.
Salt Lake City UT: Ward Hydro
We are providing and installing one 35 kW LPS FlexStream crossflow turbine for a microhydro project near Salt Lake City.
Buena Vista VA: Moomaws
Columbia Mills Hydroelectric, L.P. (FERC P-8005): installation of LPS k-IOT (“Coyote”) plant supervisory control system
Summersville WV: Summersville Hydroelectric
Summersville Hydroelectic (FERC P-10813): increase in facility nameplate capacity from 80 MW to 92 MW. LHS is installing five LPS 2.4MW TorrStrøm impulse turbines and various LPS h-Modulor civil works components.
West Wareham, MA: Tremont Dam
Redevelopment, in partnership with Asilea Group and the Town of Wareham, MA, of the decommissioned Tremont Dam hydroelectric plant. The project includes installing 2 x 150 kW LPS Reakt turbines and adding up to 4.7 MW of ground-mounted and floating solar capacity, as well as fish passage.
Englewood, CO: Big Dry Creek/ South Platte
The project includes supplying and installing 1 x 15 kW LPS Reakt-18 turbine and controls.
