Ferrovial wins contract for Portuguese dam

12 May 16 A consortium headed by Ferrovial Agroman has been awarded a €90m (£71m) contract to build the Daivoes dam and hydroelectric plant on the Támega River in northern Portugal.

Ferrovial will be working with local company MSF on the 56.5-month scheme for client Iberdrola. The project involves construction of a 264m-long, 77.5m-high arch-gravity dam together with a power plant housing two turbines with a total installed capacity of 118 MW. Ferrovial will also build a 388m tunnel to divert the river, and a weir 71m long and 10.5m high, located 2.2km downstream of the dam.

Daivoes is the first of four main contracts to be awarded by Iberdrola as part of the Támega River hydroelectric project and is the second to be executed by Ferrovial Agroman for the utility in Portugal in the last two years.
