Tumarín Hydro.

This long awaited and much need project will start after this year’s rainy season with funding from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) and the National Economic Development Bank (BNDES) of Brazil. When complete, this project will be a key component in the plan to reduce dependence on bunker fuel for energy. The first part of the construction will be a 50 kilometer all-weather road linking San Pedro del Norte with the hydroelectric site.

The construction of the hydroelectric plant is scheduled to take four years, will cost 1.1 Billion dollars and will generate 253 megawatts of power.
