Datos del Proyecto:
LOS ALGARROBOS HYDROELECTRIC PROJECT (PANAMA)
The project consists in the construction of a run-of-river hydroelectric power plant with a capacity of 9.73 MW and 57% use factor. The turbines will be powered by the flow of the Quebrada Algarrobos and the Casita de Piedra River which flow into the Chiriquí River. Three low-pressure conduction pipes optimised for the design flow will channel the water to the loading chamber where it flows into the penstock and on to the powerhouse where the electro-mechanical generating equipment is located. Energy will be transported along 11 km of transmission lines at 34.5 kV, which will connect the plant¿s substation with a point of interconnection.
