Braco Norte IV
Description: The Braço Norte IV Plant is a small run of river hydro project.
Braço Norte IV generates 14MW of electricity for the Brazilian Integrated Grid. The energy is fed in at the nearby Matupá sub-station which assures far greater stability for local energy supplies, essential for sustainable growth in this remote region. The project is on track to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the area by 319 thousand tonnes during the seven years that the project runs from August 2007.
