Odebrecht Energia invests and operates energy generation assets from renewable sources, in Brazil and abroad. Created in 2011, it has already accumulated more than 1,400 MW of power in projects under implementation in Latin America.
Its portfolio of assets comprises hydroelectric plants, wind farms, a solar plant, in addition to biomass projects and Small Hydroelectric Plants (PCHs). The company was created from the vast experience of Construtora Norberto Odebrecht, which participated in the construction of more than 58,500 MW of power generation projects in Brazil and abroad.
Main investments in Brazil
Located in Porto Velho (RO), the Santo Antônio Hydroelectric Power Plant has 3,150 MW of installed power, enough energy to supply 40 million people. The implantation of the plant is an investment of R $ 16 billion, of which R $ 1.4 billion is directed to social and environmental actions. A benchmark for national engineering and sustainability standards, Santo Antônio started power generation 9 months ahead of the contractual term.
The Corredor do Senandes Wind Complex, being implemented in Rio Grande (RS), consists of four wind farms that total 108MW of power. It is an investment of approximately R $ 400 million and is expected to start operating in 2013. Odebrecht Energia also has 16 more wind farms to be implemented, totaling 365MW.
In partnership with Neoenergia, Odebrecht Energia will implement a solar plant at Arena Pernambuco, one of the stadiums to host the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, located in São Lourenço da Mata (PE). The solar plant will generate 1MW of power, equivalent to the average consumption of six thousand Brazilians.
The Chaglla Hydroelectric Power Plant marked the beginning of Odebrecht Energia’s internationalization. Located in Huánuco, Peru, the plant has a total investment of US $ 1.2 billion, 406MW of capacity and will represent a 6.3% increase in the country’s clean energy generation.
