HYDROELECTRIC AND SMALL HYDRO PLANTS
Consistent with the diverse range of energy sources available in Brazil, which are fundamental to ensure energy security, Queiroz Galvão Energia also harnesses water power at three hydroelectric power plants: Santa Clara (60 MW) in Minas Gerais, Jauru (121.5 MW) in Mato Grosso, and Quebra Queixo (120 MW) in Santa Catarina providing a combined installed capacity of over 301.5 MW.
In 2013, the small hydroelectric power plant of Mucuri started operating in the municipality of Carlos Chagas, Minas Gerais, with an installed capacity of 19 MW.
The Group has also built the hydroelectric stations of Queimado (Minas Gerais/Goiás) and Eliezer Batista (Minas Gerais), with installed power capacity of 105 MW and 330 MW, respectively. It participated in the construction works and assembly of the electromechanical equipment for the Miranda hydroelectric power plant, in the state of Minas Gerais, with an installed power capacity of 390 MW; in the construction of the Amador Aguiar I and II hydropower plants, totaling 450 MW; and of the construction of the La Higuera hydropower plant in Chile, which is in its final stage, with an installed capacity of 156 MW.
