The power plant has a total head of 59.77m and the powerhouse is equipped with two Francis turbines, which receive water through a 1,533m long tunnel of 5.5m in diameter.

The facility is comprised of two dams and two separated reservoirs are therefore connected by one derivation tunnel. The first dam, called derivation dam, is a 25m high and 107m long earth gravity dam with segment gates. The second dam, called generation dam, is a 25m high and 55m long concrete RCC dam with free spillway.
