The lack of constancy in the precipitation patterns in our country and the large differences in the flowing rates among the seasons, have made necessary the construction of a great number of dams and reservoirs to catch the necessary water during the rainy seasons, to regulate river flows, preventing from floods, and to obtain hydroelectric power. In Spain there are more than 1.200 dams, placing us in the 5th place in the world, just behind China, U.S.A., India and the former URSS.

In Fortis Group, we have got the technical and material capacity to develop and build hydropower dams and reservoirs.
