Issue 396 - 12 Jul 2019 | 1 minute read
A fifth 334MW turbine came online on 5 July at the Laúca hydropower plant. This means that five of the six turbines are now operating, with the last expected in H1 2020. A second powerhouse taking advantage of ecological flow will add 65.5MW, taking total installed capacity to 2,070MW. The $4bn plant is being built by Brazil’s Odebrecht, with Bardell and Andritz supplying electromechanical equipment. The first turbine began operating in August 2017 after five years of construction.
