Suralco completed construction of a dam and hydropower generation facility in 1965 to provide sustainable power for a smelter, the Paranam refinery, and other Suralco operations. 80 million kwh of its 1 billion kwh annual production is reserved for the Government of Suriname.

The Suralco alumina refinery was commissioned in 1965. The integral powerhouse consists of medium pressure boilers and back pressure turbines to provide the refinerys process heating and power requirements. Steam-power balance is achieved by importing power from the Afobaka hydropower facility. An electric boiler is occasionally used when excess hydropower is available.
