The project involves the construction of a main dam in loose materials with a concrete surface (CFRD) 150 m high and 635 m long, with the spillway located on the left side of the dam body, controlled by four sluices and with a “trampoline” drainage channel for energy dissipation.
There are also plans for a secondary dam 66 m high and 410 m long.
