Customer Profile

ICE stands for Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad. It is the Costa Rican government owned electricity and telecommunications services provider and generates annual revenues of around $1,844 million. One of their biggest projects in Central America is undoubtedly the Proyecto Hidroeléctrico Reventazón, or the Reventazón Hydroelectric Project. This project aims to construct a 305.5 MW hydropower plant in the Limon Province in Costa Rica, using waters from the Reventazón River to generate an average of 1,407 gigawatt-hour (GWh) of electricity per year. Once completed, the plant will represent approximately 10 percent of Costa Rica’s total installed electricity generation capacity.
