On January 16, 2019, The Tennessee Valley Authority has released a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the construction of a new 60,000sqft Power Services Shop (PSS) Warehouse on the Muscle Shoals Reservation (MSF) in Colbert County, Alabama. The new warehouse would support the relocation of spare turbine rotors and other large generating components from throughout the Valley to a centralized location. Currently, TVA does not have a consistent approach for the storage of turbine rotors and large components used at all TVA generating facilities. By relocating the spare generating equipment to a central location within a new warehouse at Muscle Shoals, TVA will meet the purpose and need of the EA by reducing transportation costs, safety risks, and component damage risks that result from transporting equipment throughout the Valley.
