In 2014, ORPC built and operated its RivGen® Power System, the Company’s first river energy project, delivering power to the remote Alaskan village of Igiugig. ORPC re-installed and operated an updated RivGen® Power System in Igiugig in 2015 to demonstrate its latest technology advancements and provided one-third of the community’s electricity needs, significantly offsetting Igiugig's diesel fuel use.
Please be advised that ORPC Alaska, on behalf of the Village of Igiugig, is notifying the U.S. Coast Guard of the continued operation of the RivGen® Power System, in the upper Kvichak River [Figure 1]. This Power System, which generates electricity from the river’s current, is located near the west bank of the river between Fish and Game and Fly Islands (aproximately a half mile from the head of the river)...
