Project Details


Chupallar aims to produce energy to satisfy the growing power demand in the country, using the potential hydro energy from Chile's Region del Maule. The project involves the construction and operation of a 19MW hydro with a 17 m3/s flow rate. The energy generated will be injected to the SIC grid and works include building a substation and installing a 14.3km 110kV transmission line. During the construction phase 400 temporary construction jobs will need to be filled, while during the operational phase of the project around 10 permanent jobs will be created. The project is part of the Melado hydro complex, which includes the Los Hierros, Los Hierros II and Túnel Melado hydro projects.
