On May 22, 2009, FFP Project 73, LLC filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Georgetown Bend Hydrokinetic Project, to be located on the Mississippi River, in Desha and Chicot Counties, Arkansas and Bolivar and Washington Counties, Mississippi.
The sole purpose of a preliminary permit, if issued, is to grant the permit holder priority to file a license application during the permit term. A preliminary permit does not authorize the permit holder to perform any land disturbing activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others without the owners' express permission.
The proposed Georgetown Bend Hydrokinetic Project consists of: (1) 2,915 proposed 40 kilowatt Free Flow generating units having a total installed capacity of 116.60 megawatts; (2) a 3.6-mile-long, 69 kilovolt transmission line; and (3) appurtenant facilities. The proposed Georgetown Bend Hydrokinetic Project would have an average annual generation of 511 gigawatt-hours.
