Honduras Seeks Funding for Hydroelectric

The Honduran Government needs $110 million in financing for construction of El Tablón dam on the Chamelecón River.

Friday, April 24, 2009

While the dam would generate only 20 megawatts, the authorities of the Executive Committee of Valle de Sula (CEVS) visualize the project as a "magnificent protection project for the Valle de Sula," given that "it will serve to regulate flow, generate electricity and provide drinking and irrigation water."

The Laprensahn.com website published: "The director of CEVS, Mark Sandoval, reported that the Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment, Tomás Vaquero, is the one delegated by the President, along with other entities, to manage the budget for the implementation of the macro-project. 'It seems that there is already progress with Kuwait,' Sandoval reported."
