The Niagara Tunnel Project was part of a series of major additions to the Sir Adam Beck hydroelectric generation complex in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Water delivered by the major new underground tunnel complements other upgrades to Sir Adam Beck’s generating complex, resulting in a significant increase in the efficient use of the Niagara River’s hydropower. The project’s new 12.7 meters (42 ft.) diameter, 10.2 kilometers (6.3 mi) long tunnel was officially placed into service on March 21st, 2013, to help increase the generating complex’s nameplate capacity by 150 megawatts. The extra power sufficiently supplied electricity to approximately 160,000 homes.
