Los Laureles Hydroelectric Plant, Honduras

This hydroelectric project has a gross head of 78m and uses water from the San Juan River. It consists of a concrete dam with an overflow spillway, lateral intake, and desander structure. The water is conducted through a low-pressure steel pipe, followed by a 640 m long headrace tunnel to a pressure chamber serving as an intake site for the pressure pipeline. The powerhouse has 2 horizontal-shaft Francis turbines.

DLZ Carbon was hired by Genera S.A. de C.V. for the feasibility study, final design, construction plans of civil works, and technical inspection of the project.
