Project Details


The project arises as a response to the increasing electric demand for domestic and industrial consumption in the country. In this scenario, Nicaragua's power policies aim to use the hydro potential of the country and, in this case, of Boaco department.

Paso Real involves the construction and operation of a 16MW hydroelectric plant, which uses the hydro resources of the Grande de Matagalpa river to produce energy through two turbines. Among the main works of the project are the construction of a 21m high, 142m wide dam, a machine house, a substation and a 14km 69kV transmission line.
