Pihl and MT Højgaard have gained a DKK 1.5 bn contract to build a hydroelectric power station in the Bocas del Toro province 500 km north west of Panama City
Pihl and MT Højgaard, two leading Danish contractors, have gained a DKK 1.5 bn (USD 255 m) contract to build a hydroelectric power station in the Bocas del Toro province 500 km north west of Panama City. The contract was entered with the US energy group Aes Corp.
 
The hydroelectric power station will contain two turbines, generators and transformers, each with an output of 103 MW corresponding to an energy production of 939 GWh per year. The power station is fed by a 90 meter high dam which can deliver 8,300 cubic metres of water per second. In addition, a 4.5 km supply tunnel and a generating station will be constructed, as well as roads and bridges.
 
The project is scheduled to take 41 months, with the power station slated for completion in May 2010.  A 700-strong workforce will be employed on the task, including 40 Scandinavian engineers and technicians.  The news was reported by professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
