From this Consortium, since April 2009, the Corumbá Hydro Power Plant (Corumbá HPP) has been operated in the municipality of Luziânia, in Goiás (GO), the power plant's main area of influence.
The Corumbá HPP has an installed capacity of 96.42 MW. The energy produced at the plant is sold to CEB and supplies roughly 10% of Brasília's demand. In addition, the power plant also plays the strategic role of ensuring supply to the three federal branches in the event of electricity supply problems.
BACKGROUND OF THE ENTERPRISE
