The existing pilot project license authorizes the following project facilities: (a) Thirty 35-kilowatt, 5meter-diameter axial flow turbinegenerator units; (b) ten triframe mounts, each supporting three turbine-generator units; (c) 480-volt underwater cables from each triframe mount to five shoreline switchgear vaults that interconnect to a control room and interconnection points; and (d) PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 appurtenant facilities for navigation safety and operation. Under the current pilot project license, which expires on December 31, 2021, Verdant installed, tested, and then removed a total of five turbine-generator units. Verdant also proposes to install three turbine-generator units attached to one tri-frame mount in 2020, under the existing pilot project license. The proposed project would consist of a maximum of fifteen 35-kilowatt, 5meter-diameter axial flow turbinegenerator units with a total installed capacity of 0.525 megawatt, with underwater cables connecting five triframe mounts to two shoreline switchgear vaults. The project would operate using the natural tidal currents of the East River, during both ebb and flood tidal periods. As the direction of tidal flow changes, each turbinegenerator unit would rotate (or yaw) to align the rotor to the direction of flow, through a passive system caused by hydrodynamic forces on the turbinegenerator unit. The annual generation is expected to be from 840 to 1,200 megawatt-hours. o.
