  • Rehab of Costa Rica's 7-MW Tacares micro hydro plant complete

    Costa Rica Map

    STE Energy subsidiary Sorgent.e has completed renovations to the 7-MW Tacares hydropower plant in Costa Rica's Alajuela province, the company has announced.

    The small hydroelectric project was originally constructed in the 1930s to power the San Jose-Alajuela railway, and even now, Sorgent.e said its isolated location and topographical surroundings made the rehabilitation challenging. The powerhouse is located on a steep incline and is only accessible via foot or cable railway.

    Work on the US$15 million project included the installation of two horizontal-axis Francis turbines, generators, electrical boards, transformers and an automatic funicular system.
