The delivery is scheduled to be completed in November 2016.
Belo Monte is the world’s fourth-largest hydroelectric power plant and will have a planned capacity of 11.233,1 MW. This plant, which is expected to take 8 years of construction, will meet the electricity needs of 60 million people in 16 states plus the Federal District. “Alstom is honored to be part of the major hydro project in Brazil. With this contract, the company reinforces its commitment to lead power technology and offer a renewable and clean energy source to the population”, said Jacques Hardelay, Hydro Senior Vice President in Alstom’s Renewable Energies.
In January of 2012 an Alstom-led consortium, including the German company Voith and the Austrian company Andritz, was chosen to supply 20 turbine-generator sets (14 Francis turbine-generator of 611MW each for Belo Monte hydropower plant and 6 Bulb turbine-generators with rated power on the shaft of 39,8MW each for Pimental hydropower plant) and other electromechanical equipment of these plants. As part of this provision, Alstom is in charge of delivering to Belo Monte: 7 Francis turbine-generator sets, hydro mechanical equipment, bus bars and gas insulated substations (GIS) to the 18 generator units of the plant.
