The plant will ensure the movement of water at night through a pumping system from the Lower Upper Dam and by day the production of electricity through the reverse cycle of the water flows. The installed capacity is forecast to be 1.040MW and includes the completion of the systems to ensure water supply through a 6 km tunnel with a 10 m diameter, an underground power station (26 m wide, 51 m high, 156 m long), the ventilation system and an electrical substation.
