Samoa Hydro Refurbishments.
The existing hydro power stations had suffered significant damage following cyclone Evan in 2012. MTL redesigned penstocks, canals, intake structures and associated power station structures for the Samoa hydro power scheme refurbishments at the 1MW Samasoni (3.6km penstock), 1MW Alaoa and 1.7MW Fale ole Fee Hydro Stations.
Access to parts of the schemes was very constrained. The design had to account for the restricted accessibility for construction and for limited construction methods with available plant in Samoa. The projects were successfully delivered in 2018.
