What's it about


The Salto Pilão project consists of the construction of a hydropower plant with a reservoir of 0.15 km2 and an installed capacity of 182.3 MW. The plant is located between the cities of Lontras, Ibirama and Apiúna, in the state of Santa Catarina, Southern region of Brazil.

The primary objective of the hydro power plant is to help meet Brazil's rising demand for energy due to economic growth and to improve the supply of electricity, while contributing to the environmental (run-of-river power plant), social (job creation about 1,000 workers in the construction phase, and infra-structure enhancements in surrounded municipalities), and economic sustainability by increasing the share of renewable energy in total electricity consumption for Brazil.
