About the project

The “Central Hidroeléctrica de Melo” project aims to harness the waters derived from the matrix channel of the Association towards Estero Caliboro. The type of plant is flowing, and it is dimensioned by a flow of 13.5 sqm/s, with an installed power of 2.8 MW. It has a low-rise diversion work and a conventional water-catchment work that feeds a trapezoidal section, 3,170m-long channel, which connects with a loading chamber. The water is transported to the engine chamber through a forced pipeline of DN2400 and 850 m long.

Impulso SAGE has benefited from the European Regional Development Fund, which aims to promote technological development and innovation. Thanks to this funding, we have been able to add innovation to our processes, strategies, and advice for a digital marketing plan, and to promote ourselves internationally for the development of energy and water management projects. This action took place during 2021. To carry it out, we also had the support of the InnoCámaras program, from the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce.


LENTE INGENIEROS, within the framework of the ICEX Next program, has had the support of ICEX, and the co-financing of the European ERDF fund. This support aims to contribute to the international development of the company and its environment.
