El Encanto project placed online

Costa Rica’s state-owned power utility, CNFL, said it has placed the 8.5-MW El Encanto hydropower plant into service.

Construction of the US$36 million project began in September 2006. The plant will produce 41 GWH a year, enough for 12,000 families, CNFL said.

The El Encanto project is equipped with two Francis turbines and uses water from the Aranjuez and Veracruz rivers.
