  • First turbine operational at Brazil's Santo Antonio hydro plant

    BRASILIA, Brazil 2/28/12 (PennWell) -- State-owned news agency Agencia Brasil has announced that the first turbine at the 3,150-MW Santo Antonio hydroelectric plant should be operational by March.

    The plant was originally to have opened in December 2011, according to project owner Santo Antonio Energia. It was given environmental approval in September 2011.
