Pantasma, 13 MW

PANTASMA hydroelectric plant

This hydroelectric project uses the waters of the Pantasma river, with a reservoir of more than 845 000 m3 in normal operation, has a concrete weir dam and 131 m embankment dam to complete the closure. Water is caught by an intake system and conducted through a 4204 m long low-pressure pipe, split in two sections, separated by a 818m long tunnel, up to a 34.15 m surge tank, cushioning overpressures generated in the high- pressure, steep fall pipeline. The gross head of the project is 400 m.

First private project of this magnitude in Nicaragua

CARBON Engineering was hired by Hidropantasma S.A. to review the project’s budget , making the final design and construction plans for civil works.
