Energy from water

Isolux Corsán awarded Ayesa a contract for the basic and detail engineering for the Miguillas hydroelectric power project in Bolivia. The project is being executed for the Public Bolivian Electricity Corporation (ENDE) and comprises the construction of two new plants, Umapalca and Palillada. The total estimated investment amounts to around 361 million euros.

This project will contribute to the further development of Bolivia, increasing its electric potential by 15% and ensuring supply throughout the Andean highland country. 
The contractor Isolux Corsán, and the two engineering companies involved, Ayesa and TSK, are responsible for the final design of construction, civil works, supply of equipment, installation, testing and commissioning of both plants. To centralise management of this challenging project, they decided to use think project!.
