Project Profile: Rocky Mountain Pumped Storage Hydroelectric Plant

The Rocky Mountain Hydroelectric Plant is a pumped-storage power plant located 10 miles northwest of Rome in the U.S. state of Georgia. It is named after Rocky Mountain on top of which the plant’s upper reservoir is located. The plant has an installed capacity of 1,095 megawatts and is owned by both Oglethorpe Power and Georgia Power.

Canary Systems has been tasked with supplying automated data acquisition equipment, software and services to improve and upgrade the Dam Safety Instrumentation System (DSIS) at the Rocky Mountain Hydroelectric plant. This included building the project database as well as aggregating historical data: manually collected measurements including weirs, settlement monuments, and standpipes, as well as automated piezometer data.
