Merrimack Valley Reliability Project

New Hampshire & Massachusetts

Over the last several years, meeting southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts energy needs has been a priority for the regional grid operator. The Merrimack Valley Reliability Project (MVRP) was developed to improve the flexibility and resiliency of the region’s electric grid. Designed to use existing transmission corridors to minimize impacts on the environment, the MVRP promises to provide long-term benefits with 175 new structures between Tewksbury, Massachusetts, and Londonderry, New Hampshire. VHB supported the project goals by providing siting and licensing, environmental assessment, permitting, survey, mitigation design and construction compliance services.
