  • Water Intake in Odeleite (Q = 0.8 m3/s);
  • Odeleite-Beliche Tunnel (Ø = 3.30 m, L = 3 km, Q = 25 m3/s);
  • Water Intake in Beliche (Q = 25 m3/s);
  • Beliche Tunnel – Pumping Station 1 (L = 0.4 km, Ø = 3.30 m);
  • 2 Surge Shafts (Ø = 11 m, h = 30 and 40 m);
  • Pumping Station 1 (Q = 10,4 m3/s; h = 80 m; P = 11 MW);
  • Pumping Station 2 (Q = 8.4 m3/s, h = 13 m, P = 1,5 MW);
  • Trunk Main (Ø = 2 500 mm, L = 28 km);
  • Santo Estêvão Reservoir (V = 150 000 m3);
  • Pumping Station 3 (Q = 2.2 m3/s, H = 21 m, P = 600 kW);
  • Pressure Irrigation Network: 281 km of pipes;
  • Drainage network: 107 km of channels;
