Modernisation of a hydroelectric plant in Brazil
Omexom in Belo Horizonte will carry out the project for the updating of CEMIG’s largest hydroelectric power plant, with 1,192 MW of installed capacity, located on the River Paranaiba near to the city of Araguari (Minas Gerais).
The project involves replacing all the auxiliary electrical equipment and supplying major components for the plants main systems. It is also planned to provide more than 90 columns of electrical panels for all four generating units over a period of 14 months.
The challenge is to carry out the works with the plant in operation and to minimize the impact on energy production.
