Project:

The Barro Blanco Project consists of the construction of a 28.84 MW hydroelectric dam, with a budget of $80 million. The construction works are taking place in the heart of the rainforest in the Chiriqui highlands, a very damp area with fast-flowing rivers which are difficult to monitor. The environment requires heavy machinery which is able to work in very wet areas, allowing quick excavations and high production rates. Articulated trucks, loaders, backhoes and heavy-duty bulldozers, as well as generators and high flow rate bilge pumps have been used.
