  • Dominican Republic begins work on 18-MW Monte Grande hydropower project

    Dominican Republic

    Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina inaugurated construction of the 18-MW Monte Grande hydropower plant earlier this week.

    The project will be multipurpose scheme, the country's government said, with approximately 486,000 hectares of agricultural land expected to benefit from Monte Grande's reservoir.

    The project is being coordinated by the Instituto Nacional de Recursos Hidraulicos (INDRHI).

    Sources report that the Dominican Republic's government had signed a contract with Brazil's Andrade Gutierrez for development of Monte Grande in 2011, though work never began.

    The hydropower plant will be located on the Yaque del Sur River in Barahona province.
