The project involved the extension of the existing building of valves at the dam of the reservoir of the Rio Quinto of "Las Carretas" with placement of a Kaplan-type turbine for hydroelectric use.
The study consists in the processing of input and output data from the reservoir and its variations in level and volume to size the maximum flow rates seasonally expected for the planned irrigation systems and the usable flow rates in order to obtain the maximum production feasibility.
Maximum flow rate 60 cu.m/s. Installed power 900kW. Production feasibility 6.9 GWh. Capital Cost for produced kW 225 £/kWh.
