Camarasa Rebuild
Location: Lerida
Operator: Endesa Generacion
Configuration: 4 X 15 MW Francis
Operation: 1958-1959
T/G supplier: Sulzer Escher Wyss, GEC
Quick facts: The first electromechanical equipment at Camarasa was installed in 1929 just downstream of the 103m Camarasa Dam. The plant was built for Barcelona Traction, Light and Power Co Ltd, known as Canadenca since it was founded in Sep 1911 by Canadian engineer Fred Stark Pearson. Pearson acquired development rights on the Rio Noguera Pallaresa and then built the dam and power station. This was the first Spanish dam over 100m in height. The plant was taken over by FECSA, later rolled up into Endesa.

Quick facts: Canelles Dam is a 140m, high-arch structure located on the Rio Noguera Ribagorzana in the Spanish Pyreness. The dam was completed in Apr 1958. After the first partial filling of the reservoir, substantial leakage was detected in complex karstic formations along the abutments. This was remedied by a 400m grout curtain with 25,000t of grout injected.
