The La Zaida Hydropower Plant is located on the right bank of the River Ebro, in the municipality of La
Zaida, some 43 kilometres downstream from the city of Zaragoza. This area is part of the county of Ribera Baja
del Ebro, the capital of which is the town of Quinto de Ebro.
Around 5 kilometres downstream of the Villa Los Ángeles Plant, the La Zaida Plant harnesses the existing local
irrigation association’s irrigation and weir diversion facilities.
No references have been kept regarding the origins of these hydraulic installations, although it is known
that over the passage of time a number of modifications have been made in order to adapt them to the specific
needs of that period.
