Project Profile

BAESA Project

The BAESA Project is a dam and hydroelectric power plant on the Pelotas River near Celso Ramos on the border of Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The power station has a 708 MW capacity and is supplied with water by a concrete face rock-fill embankment dam, the second tallest dam in Brazil. It produces a 30% equivalent of the demand in Santa Catarina or 20% of the total energy consumed in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.
