  • Brazil's 19-MW Cavernoso 2 small hydropower project operating at full capacity

    Parana State

    Brazil's 19-MW Cavernoso 2 hydropower project is now running at full capacity following the startup of the plant's last two hydro turbines, operator Compahia Paranaense de Energia (Copel) announced.

    The small hydro project has been operating with one 6.3 MW turbine since the Agencia Nacional de Energia Electrica (ANEEL) gave its go-ahead for commercial operation in April.

    The plant is located in Brazil's southern Parana state and will feed power to around 50,000 consumers in Virmond and Candoi, Copel said.

    Cavernoso 2 was announced in March 2011 as part of the Brazilian government's special infrastructure development program known as Reidi.
