The intake and the powerhouse will form a monolithic concrete bloc. The powerhouse will be 18 meters wide and will have a length of 45 meters, including the intake, the water chamber and the draft tube. The top of the powerhouse would also serve as a road, thus maintaining the existing road access to the Portage Dam.
