Located in the country's southern Parana state, Cavernoso 2 includes three 6.3 MW turbines and will feed power to Virmond and Candoi.

The project is owned by utility Companhia Paranaense de Energia Electrica (Copel) and was announced in March 2011 as part of the Brazilian government's special infrastructure development program known as Reidi.
