    Itaipu Hydroelectric Project

    Brazil's 14,000-MW Itaipu hydroelectric plant has established a new first quarter output record of 24.8 TWh, according to operator Itaipu Binacional.

    Statistics provided by Itaipu Binacional also show the project's output from March was the highest on record at 8.86 TWh, passing the previous best of 8.55 TWh set in 2009.

    "Taking into consideration the figures achieved in the first quarter, it is easy to see 2013 being better than 2012 in terms of production," the company said.

    Itaipu Binacional attributed the banner month to a combination of high demand and operational efficiency, coupled with the arrival of the region's wet season.

    The Itaipu complex -- located on the Parana River between the Brazil and Paraguay border -- set an overall output record of 98 TWh through 2012.
