  • 480 MW of hydroelectric power coming to southern Brazil

    A pair of new hydropower plants will add more than 480 MW of combined capacity to Brazil's electrical system, HydroWorld.com has learned.

    The two hydro facilities -- 350-MW Baixo Iguacu and 135-MW Sao Roque -- were recently granted concession contracts by the country's Ministry of Mines and Energy.

    The Baixo Iguacu plant is expected to cost US$794 million and will be located near Capanema. The plant will be operated by Brazilian power holding company Neoenergia S.A., via its subsidiary Blue Sky Generation.

    Meanwhile, the $322.4 million Sao Roque hydropower facility will be located near Vargem and operated by Sao Roque Energy S.A., which is a subsidiary of Desenvix Renewables S.A.

    Work on both plants is scheduled to begin in February 2013, with commissioning in 2016.
