The works to be completed include repair of leaks in the "El Cajon" dam that occurred after the earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale on 28th May 2009.

This phenomenon led to an increased volume of water through a series of leaks in the rock, tunnels and in the curtain of the hydroelectric station, according to ElHeraldo.hn.

The name of the tender process is "Special maintenance work of the underground works on the General Francisco Morazán Hydroelectric Project, MOS".
