Project Details


Argentina's Los Blancos hydroelectric project aims to inject electricity into the country's central power grid. The project calls for work to be carried out at a 560m-high natural waterfall on the Tunuyán river and the construction of dams Los Blancos and Los Tordillos and hydroelectric complexes Los Blancos I (324MW) and Los Blancos II (119MW). This hydro project aims not only to provide electric power for the area but also to regulate the Tunuyán river and control tidal growth in the river basin.
