ENERGIA LIMPIA XXI. As part of a new Tractebel focus in Latin America; in line with projects that have zero carbon as a guideline, a 15 hectare floating photovoltaic plant is under development on the Batalha hydroelectric power plant reservoir in Paracatu, Minas Gerais.
Carrying out this complex renewables project for Furnas Centrais Elétricas, Tractebel will develop the basic project for the implementation of Batalha Photovoltaic Plants (UFVs) I, II and III. A report by Energía Limpia XXI states that the goal is to reach a total installed power of 30MW. This will be achieved with about 90,900 photovoltaic modules floated on the reservoir, the balance of photovoltaic modules needed to meet the target will be developed on the ground, making use of what was once the construction site of Batalha Hydro. The energy generated will be sufficient to meet the monthly energy needs of close to 30,000 homes.
