Dos Mares, 118 MW

DOS MARES Hydrolectric Plant

GDF Suez developed Dos mares Hydroelectric Complex in the Chiriquí province, Panama, made up of 3 plants located in a cascade formation for run-of-the river electric generation, with a total installed capacity of 118 MW. The project utilizes water discharge from Estí Hydroelectric Plant, in addition to benefitting from the flow of Estí, Cochea and Papayal rivers. The projects are of similar nature, with open channel flow, a 26 km long adduction and restitution channel system and power houses located down stream from the water intake points.
