EDP Tua – Scientific assessment of impact monitoring and compensation programs of the Hydroelectric Infrastructure of Foz Tua (AHFT) - Phase 1 (2010-2015)

 

The purpose of the project is to provide scientific consultancy for EDP on the biology components (Flora, Fauna and Aquatic Ecosystems) of the Compensation, Minimization and Environmental Monitoring of the Foz-Tua Hydroelectric Dam (AHBS) project. The main goals are to optimize the cost-benefit of the mitigation/compensation measures and actions implemented and and to ensure their ecological efficiency during the construction period, including the flooding of the reservoir, scheduled to the end of 2015.
