Venezuela - Guri Powerhouse Extension Project (English)

As already mentioned, the first stage of Guri with its three units is nearing completion. The project now proposed for Bank financing would include civil works to extend the powerhouse to ten units, and the installation of unit 4 complete and of embedded parts for units 5 to 10. It would also provide for consulting services for engineering and supervision during procurement and construction. The basic powerhouse construction would be completed during 1969-72. Unit 4, the first in the expansion program, would come into service in 1973; the remaining six units would be erected one each year commencing in 1975. The resulting power capacity would meet the market forcast for Guri through 1980.
