Black & Veatch named owner’s representative for San Diego pumped storage plant

22 January 2018

Plans for a 500MW pumped storage facility at the San Vicente Reservoir near Lakeside in San Diego County, California, have taken a major step forward with the news that Black & Veatch has been selected to serve as owners’ representative for the project.

Project owners, the San Diego County Water Authority and the City of San Diego, are assessing the potential to develop the San Vicente Energy Storage Facility (SVESF) to increase the availability and efficiency of renewable energy for the region. As the newly appointed owners’ representative, Black & Veatch will help evaluate proposals, select the full service team and negotiate the project delivery agreement.

The SVESF project includes the establishment of a small reservoir above the existing San Vicente Reservoir as well as a tunnel system and underground powerhouse to connect the two reservoirs.
