Puketi hydroelectric power plant

The Puketi hydroelectric power plant was a micro hydro power plant constructed near the village of Puketi in Suriname, with a capacity of 50 kW (67 hp). The plant provided electricity between 1981 and 1987, before it went into disrepair. According to hydrologist Rudi van Els the plant could be rehabilitated, but efforts are now focussed on the construction of the Gran Olo hydroelectric power plant nearby.
