Paloemeu or Palumeu is a small Amerindian village in the interior of Suriname, situated at the site where the Paloemeu River joins the Tapanahoni River. The town is primarily by the native Tiriyó Indians. Vincent Fayks Airport is located near the village.EnergySince the early 2000s there have been efforts to construct a micro hydroelectric power plant in the Panato creek to provide Paloemeu with electricity. These efforts were initiated by the Dutch entrepreneur Arnout van de Werken. Several difficulties, including the flooding of the small reservoir in 2005, have hampered the project. As of 2014, Palumeu still does not have full day electricity, and continues to rely on the few hours of diesel-generated electricity provided by the government.HealthcarePaloemeu is home to a Medische Zending healthcare centre.
