MORE ABOUT THE MPX PECÉM THERMO PLANT
Brazil will add 1,080 megawatts (MW) of electric power in the Northeastern states of Ceará and Maranhão with the construction of two coal-fired power plants partly financed by the Inter-American Development Bank
The towns of Pecém (Ceara) and Itaqui (Maranhão) will add 720MW and 360MW, respectively, to the national grid by 2012 and are part of the Brazilian Government’s Growth Acceleration Program (PAC).
In approving the loans, the IDB sought to balance the dual objectives of meeting growing energy demand in its member countries while responsibly mitigating sources of climate change.
In order to meet anticipated demand, electricity supplies in Brazil need to grow by about 4,500MW per year, according to government estimates. These new plants, which will sell energy to 32 distribution companies that have a combined client base of more than 158 million people, will make a substantial contribution to this goal.
Fossil fuels make up a comparatively small part of Brazil’s energy matrix, thanks to a system of hydroelectric facilities that supplies 84 percent of the country’s electricity and an ethanol industry that produces around 40 percent of its transportation fuel. However, these renewable sources make Brazil vulnerable to drought, so the government has been working to diversify its energy matrix to guarantee security, reliability and affordability of the supply of electricity.
As a condition for the IDB’s participation in each project, the sponsors agreed to develop and implement a Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Plan. The plan will include the construction of renewable energy projects to offset approximately 10 percent of the annual greenhouse gas emissions produced by the Pecém I and Itaqui plants. Under the plan, these renewable power projects will meet the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change eligibility criteria for carbon offsets.
The project that started the construction in November 2008 plans to be completed in 2012. You can read more about this and follow the work progression from this link here on the MPX official website.
