Project Details


The Ituango hydro project calls for the construction and operation of a hydroelectric power plant on the Cauca river. The mega project requires a dam that will create a 2.7Bm3 water reservoir. In addition, the plant will have generation units, with Francis-type turbines with vertical axis. Transmission infrastructure includes a 500kV substation and a 630km transmission line (550kV) that will inject an estimated 4,567GWh/y into Colombia's national SIN grid.
