Cemex to supply cement for Reventazon dam, hydro project in Costa Rica

The Costa Rican Institute of Electrical power, which oversees the Reventazon hydroelectric facility construction, has chosen Cemex, a global supplier of building supplies, as the principal cement supplier for the first phase of the hydropower project.

Cemex will deliver 50,000 tons of cement for the initial phase of the $1.2 billion hydroelectric plant, which will produce 311 MW of energy upon its completion in 2016.

The hydro project is planned for the area of Siquirres in Limon province and will use water from the Reventazon, and supply 524,000 homes.

Project works include a 130-meter-high, 527-meter-wide concrete face rockfill dam, a 1.68-kilometer water transport tunnel and four Francis turbines.
