Acaray Hydroelectric Power Plant — Hernandarias, Paraguay 

The Acaray Hydroelectric Power Plant is located on the Acaray River between Ciudad del Este and Hernandarias, Paraguay. The Acaray retention dam creates a reservoir that allows water to be delivered through these two penstocks to the Acaray I and Acaray II powerplant turbines located one kilometre away. 

“This project was an incredible experience from both a professional perspective — transferring knowledge to the workforce; and a personal perspective — being immersed in another culture as a guest in their country. An experience never forgotten.”
