Bermejales, Spain

Site 2 – Bermejales, Spain

Bermejales (2.1 MW) is a dam-toe type hydropower plant with an average production of 2 GWh per annum, and with an associated reservoir of 102.6 hm3.  It is also in a dry tropical climate. The plant is composed of a Francis turbine that operates between 0.8-4.8 m3/s, with a nominal head of 56.5 m at 750 rpm. This is also an ideal plant to explore possible solutions of hybridization and interoperability with other renewable sources and to foster hydropower flexibility solutions and participation in energy markets, due to its seasonal operation, as the downstream water is used for irrigation which takes place for just a few months per year.
