Pinalito Hydroelectric Plant, Dominican Republic

The 50-megawatt Pinalito power plant is being built by Odebrecht for the Corporación Dominicana de Electricidad. The scheme features a 70-metre-high dam and two 10-kilometer-long water intake tunnels, and water distribution pipes.

DLT Engineering were employed by Odebrecht to supply equipment and site supervision to install a water distribution pipe which was required to pass over one of Dominican's many mountains. DLT's equipment and supervisors assisted in the installation of the pipe, pulling a total of 78 sections, from 10 different locations. The maximum pull was 132 tonnes, and the longest pull 157m.

The project was undertaken in 2006 / 2007
