Santa Cruz Consortium receives technical visit
On May 10, representatives of FURNAS and Eletrobrás clients made a technical visit to the construction site of the combined cycle shutdown works at Santa Cruz Thermoelectric Plant, underway in Rio de Janeiro.
The project, which has almost 98% of its construction concluded, had its visit coordinated by the Generation Engineering Superintendence of FURNAS and counted with the presence of the team from the Generation Expansion Management Superintendence from Eletrobrás, as well as representatives from Santa Cruz Consortium.
Currently, UTE Santa Cruz operates in open cycle through the burning of natural gas. With the implementation of the combined cycle, another 150 megawatts will be added to the plant’s nominal generation capacity, ensuring a final power output of at least 507 megawatts net – which will be possible through the thermal reuse from the two existing gas generating units.
The works to increase energy generation capacity will not consume more fuel. Thus, there will be no increase in the emission of pollutant gases.
