The development is destined to the production of electrical energy using the Fronhas Dam’s ecological flow.
It is composed by the following main components: intake in the pressure stretch of the Dam’s half-bottom outlet, feed line of the station and the hydroelectric plant.
In the beginning, the intake will have a rectangular section of 2,00 x 0.25 m²and in the end a circular section DN 800 mm.
The hydroelectric plant, designed with a Francis turbine, has a maximum power of 811 kW for a 2 m³/s flow and a maximum net head of 46 m.
