Project Profile: NY State Hydro Power Dams & Clark Energy Center, New York

Project: Switchyard, Control Center & Intake Security Study & Design

Client: New York State Power Authority

Scope of Work: Professional Systems Engineering, LLC conducted a security study and implemented counter terrorist security deterrents for two dams, the 345kV/765kV high tension distribution Massena switchyard, and the water supply intake for the town of Massena, NY. A component of the study included cyber security for SCADA and telemetry systems.

The R.E. Moses Power Dam (FDR Power Project) is a critical power generation dam spanning the St. Lawrence River, and is shared with Canada. The Long Sault Dam is a critical water control dam on the St. Lawrence River, which is associated with the Moses Dam. The Massena switchyard is a critical feed to the NYPA electrical power distribution system. The study assessed the vulnerabilities of the facilities, documented the existing security measures, provided recommendations with alternatives, and provided a detailed construction cost estimate.

The Clark Energy Center is a major control center for electrical power distribution for NYPA and is manned 24 hours per day. The 345kV switchyard is a critical feed to the NYPA electrical power distribution system. The study assessed the vulnerabilities of the facilities, documented the existing security measures, provided alternatives and recommendations, and provided a detailed construction cost estimate. The CEC system will interface with the existing NYPA system-wide security control center located approximately 125 miles away, which will have remote control and monitoring capabilities of the CEC system.
