 The proposal is to build and operate a new 600 MW pumped storage scheme utilising the existing Loch Kemp as the upper storage reservoir and Loch Ness as the lower reservoir. Loch Kemp would be raised by approximately 28 m from its existing 177 m. Four new saddle dams and four minor cut off dams would be constructed around Loch Kemp to form the upper reservoir. A new shaft type powerhouse would be constructed on the shore of Loch Ness, with integral tailrace arrangement with fish screens connecting the system to Loch Ness. The scheme would utilise an underground tunnelled waterway system to link between the intake on Loch Kemp and the powerhouse at Loch Ness, with the potential inclusion of a surge shaft (with associated access) on the hilltop between Loch Kemp and Loch Ness.
