First impounding of the Arenal reservoir

Important milestone towards the commissioning of the plant

The first impounding of the Arenal reservoir (62 MW power plant in Honduras) is scheduled to start in the next few days. This is an important milestone towards the commissioning of the plant and it will take two to three months until completion, depending on the river discharge.

Lombardi has dealt with the project development since the preliminary stages and has continued to assist the client through the final design and tendering, until detail design and site supervision during construction.
