Villaverde´s Dam

The construction of this dam, along with the other under the Tajo de la Encantada, began in 1974 to take advantage of the gap between the river and called Mesa de Villaverde (small plateau of Villaverde), incorporating new technology consisting of a pumped storage plant that rises water during night.

The jump operation is based on a closed circuit between two dams of alternative use, up and down, attached by pumping, exploiting the excess of energy produced to fill the upper dam overnight.
