Revisión de temas medioambientales:

Aspectos ambientales y laborales:

Antecedentes del proyecto: El proyecto consiste en la construcción de una central hidroeléctrica a filo de agua, con una capacidad nominal de 5 MW, que incluirá diversas instalaciones a lo largo de un tramo de 4,7 km del río Upá. Las instalaciones principales incluyen una presa de captación situada a 620 metros sobre el nivel del mar, un túnel de derivación de 1,7 km que conduce a un embalse situado a 619 metros sobre el nivel del mar (con un volumen de aproximadamente 10.000 m3) y una central de generación situada a 352 metros sobre el nivel del mar, conectada al embalse mediante una tubería de presión enterrada. Al lado de la central de generación se instalará un transformador que se conectará a una línea de transmisión de 3,5 km, la cual terminará en el punto más cercano de conexión a la red, en el poblado de El Jobo.
