The main component is the construction of the Susu dam on the Bertram River, more than 80 metres high and constructed entirely using the advanced technology of RCC (roller compacted concrete) with a total volume of about 750,000 m3. In addition to the dam, the project involves the construction of an underground plant, which will house two Francis turbines with a power output of 191 MW each and the construction of approximately 26 Km of hydraulic tunnels, of which approximately 15 Km excavated with Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) and the remaining with the traditional method. The installed power of the system is 382 MW.
Recognitions: A Safety Award from the Specialized Carriers and Rigging Association (SC&RA) for the underground installation of an overhead crane.
