Located in British Columbia, 1,000 km northwest of Vancouver, Forrest Kerr is a 195-MW run-of-river hydroelectric project. This facility captures the immense energy produced by the natural flow and elevation drop of the Iskut River. It delivers clean, renewable power to the grid at Bob Quinn Lake, through BC Hydro’s 287-kV Northwest Transmission Line (NTL). Locally, the project acts as a clean, renewable energy source for regional development. On a national and global scale, the project helps meet Canada’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
CAP performed the preliminary topographic and construction survey and layout for this project. We mapped out access roads, water intake areas, powerhouse locations, penstock alignment, and bridge crossings. We also established geomatic control and the associated drafting of the completed site plan.
