Pumped Storage Power Plant, Agira Sheuva

Area: Mount Gilboa

Project Value: TBD

Status: Ongoing


A hydroelectric power station that pumps water from a high-level to a low-level reservoir through an underground turbine installed in a 10-story structure. Produces about 300 megawatts of electricity. In times of excess electricity, the turbine becomes a pump that shifts the water back to the upper reservoir for use when needed. This is an efficient way to store and produce electricity on a large scale and meet demand as required. Being the first project in Israel, it presented unique challenges in systems integration, communications, and logistics.
