  • First hydro turbine at 3,750-MW Jirau now in operation

    Jirau Hydroelectric Project

    The first turbine generator unit at Brazil's 3,750-MW Jirau hydropower plant is now in commercial operation.

    The 75 MW turbine entered service late this past week after operator Tractebel received a go-ahead from the Agencia Nacional de Energia Electrica (ANEEL).

    HydroWorld.com reported in June that the plant had been recognized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) under its Clean Development Mechanism.

    The project is part of the 6.6-GW Rio Madeira complex which also includes the 3,150-MW Santo Antonio.
