Project scope and objective
The Hidroabanico project (the "Project") consists of building a mini hydroelectric power plant. Located near the town of Macas in the Amazon river basin, the plant will generate 14.88 MW of clean energy that will replace polluting energy and create jobs in an economically depressed area. This run-of-the-river plant will harness the flow of the Abanico River, so it will not be necessary to build a reservoir. Pelton turbines will be used, and the head will be nearly 350 meters. There will be a 468-meter penstock, with the pipe running down a 2.3-kilometer channel.
This project will help modernize power sector infrastructure and increase power generation capacity in Ecuador.
