On August 25, 2009, Issaquena County Board of Supervisors filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Fitler Bend Hydrokinetic Project, to be located on the Mississippi River, in East Carroll Parish, Louisiana and Issaquena County, 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 Fitler Bend Hydrokinetic Project consists of: (1) 25 proposed 200 kilowatt Underwater Electric Kite generating units having a total installed capacity of 5 megawatts, mounted to a 200-foot-long by 80-foot-wide barge; (2) a 7-mile-long, 115 kilovolt transmission line; and (3) appurtenant facilities. The proposed Fitler Bend Hydrokinetic Project would have an average annual generation of 43.8 gigawatt-hours.
