Paso Ancho is a 7 MW power plant, commissioned in 2011, with an annual production of 42,9 GWh.
A SediCon Dredge of 200 mm was supplied for the reservoir to remove the annual income of approximately 25,000 m3.
Implementation: The SediCon Dredge was installed, tested and commissioned in August, 2018.
Results: The gravity powered hydrosuction dredge was tested after installation. Sediment deposits were removed at an average rate of more than 40 m3 per hour, which is more than twice of what was agreed in the contract.
