HYDROELECTRIC PROJECT: AUTOABAS I, MEX.
Located on the Yaqui, Sonora River. CCR dam 40 m high, crown length 304 m, volume of 110,000 m³. Powerhouse exterior type, attached
to the dam, with 2 Kaplan turbines. Load 30 m, spending 134.96 m³/s. Water intake pipe pressure and F 4.50 m and length 10 m.
HYDROELECTRIC PROJECT: SAN RAFAEL, MEX.
It is located in the state of Nayarit, Mexico. Technoproject directors and specialists worked in CFE in the first stage of this project.
The maximum height of the dam is about 35 m, the crown length is 230 m, and 85,000 m³ of CCR.
HYDROELECTRIC PROJECT: EL TAMBOLAR, ARG.
The project consists of a rockfill dam with concrete face CFRD with approximate dimensions of 100 m in height and crown length of
400 m, a volume of 6,000,000 m³. It requires a concrete screen of more than 100 m deep excavated in the alluvial material that constitutes
the foundation of the dam. The spout is freely downloadable side channel for a flow of 3,200 m³/s, generation's work consists of an
outlet for flow of 91 m³/s, a pipe of 2.5 km and a center equipped with 75 MW.
Currently the review of the conceptual approach is made,
the basic engineering and executive design that goes out to bid the construction of the project.
HYDROELECTRIC PROJECT: LAS CRUCES, PAN.
It is located in the Province of Veraguas on the San Pablo River. As part of the Engineering work, the Basic Engineering arrangements
were optimized in which an arched CCV Dam was proposed that was considered very difficult to embed in the geology of the site, and
the Executive Design and resident Engineering was developed, including supervision during construction for a CCR Dam, supervising
all fronts of the work, for CAFISA. It consists of a diversion tunnel of 230m in length and a semicircular section of 9m, a CCR dam
with a free spout, 60m high, for an estimated volume of 110,000 m³, two 3.0m pressure pipes, for a total flow of 50 m³ / s, with a
bifurcation in one of them at 0.80m and a superficial Powerhouse at the foot of the Dam with two horizontal axis Francis type turbogenerator
units, for an installed power of 20 MW.
