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 $1844 million. One of its 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 Reventazóón River to generate an average of 1407 gigawatt-hour (GWh) of electricity per year. Once completed, the plant will represent approximately 10 per cent of Costa Rica’s total installed electricity generation capacity.
Approximately 3000 workers work over a wide area are involved in this project and demand for security is huge in order to provide a safe and secure ground for workers and for management to monitor project progress. For unparalleled flexibility and NVR features, the system integrator chose NUUO Mainconsole solutions for this particular site. “NUUO products are very easy to install and we have great success with the solutions they offer from NUUO,” said Steve Herra Villalobos, coordinator of the Department of Electronic Security.

NUUO Mainconsole is very easy to use and features special Tri-brid solution that incorporates both analogue and digital camera inputs along with a capture card for maximum compatibility benefits.
For a project as large as the hydroelectric endeavour it is paramount to have local and remote viewing functions available along with efficient management of cameras spread through a large surrounding area.
