Hi again,
The text goes:
Almenara: Construccion en cemento, alberga el sistema hidraulica para la apertura de la compuerta de servicio principal y el wincher con malacate para apertura de la compuerta auxiliar de la tuberia de carga.
The translation is about a hydroelectic power station, dams etc. in Colombia.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
