With a power output of 11.2 MW produced by two horizontal-axis francis turbine/generators, the powerhouse provides guaranteed power to the national grid during two daily peak periods.
Management of this peak demand is ensured by headwater works consisting of a 100,000 m3 reservoir located 2.5 km upstream of the powerhouse and having a 220-m head, regulating the flow coming from three harnessed rivers. All access roads, river intakes structures, waterways, penstock, tailrace channel and all electrical equipment were also part of this turnkey project.
