About the project

The project consists of a hydroelectric power plant located on the Limay River, in the provinces of Neuquén and Río Negro, in Patagonia, Argentina. It is part of a hydroelectric complex with an installed capacity of 1,260 megawatts, equivalent to approximately 7% of the country’s total hydroelectric power generation, which in turn generates 29% of the country’s electricity.

The Chocón consists of a dam 2,540 meters long and 86 meters high above the foundation and a hydroelectric power plant located on the left bank of the river immediately downstream of the dam. The power plant has six generating sets with a total power of 1,200 MW that are linked to the Argentine interconnection system with a 500 KV transmission line.
