HOCHTIEF Solutions designed and built a turnkey run-of-river power station around 220 kilometers southeast of Santiago de Chile. The contract included an above-ground power plant, several tunnels, and a pressure shaft driven some 360 meters vertically into the ground. HOCHTIEF was also responsible for the construction of the access roads, all the concrete work for the catchment system, the turbines/generators, all building services, the steel construction for the isolated water catchment vessels, and connecting the system to the grid. La Confluencia’s watershed has a capacity of 1.2 million cubic meters. The new hydroelectric power station will cut annual CO2 emissions in Chile by more than 400,000 metric tons.
