The Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) has awarded a US$1.99 million contract to Farrans (Construction) Ltd. to restore a historic hydroelectric project at Roe Valley Country Park in Limavady, County Londonberry.

NIEA first sought bids for the work in November 2011.

The agency's proposal includes a design-build contract for the Roe Valley Country Park Hydroelectric Power Restoration Scheme, which involves the installation of a hydro turbine within an existing powerhouse.

Other work includes construction of a concrete inlet structure and spillway near existing waterways, repairs to the Mill Race Structure, trench excavation and laying a penstock from the Mill Race to the turbine intake tunnel, work within the existing tunnel and turbine chamber, alteration of the tailrace, and removal and protection of historic existing equipment.
