The 180MW Tumarin hydroelectric plant, with a 230kV transmission line, will use water from the Río Grande de Matagalpa river to generate some 870GWh/y. Tumarin will provide 22% of Nicaragua's total electricity requirement and generate around 5,000 jobs. The project is to be turned over to the local government once investors recover their investment in 20 to 30 years.
Company Centrales Hidroeléctricas de Nicaragua, comprised of Brazilian construction firm Queiroz Galvao, Brazilian state utility Eletrobras and Nicaraguan state power company Enel, is behind the Tumarín hydro project
