Industrial water contracts worth €4m awarded to Degremont in Brazil

Two power plants in Brazil have contracted French company Degremont to operate water cycle facilities over four years in a deal worth €4 million.

GDF SUEZ subsidiary Tractebel Energia contracted Degremont to operate the water cycle facilities of the Jorge Lacerda thermoelectric complex and the Lages bioenergy plant in Santa Catarina State, Brazil.

The water facilities include four power boilers, cooling tower systems, air conditioning systems, two water treatment plants and two demineralization plants.

With an installed capacity of 857 MW, the Jorge Lacerda thermoelectric complex is the largest coal burning thermoelectric complex of Latin America.

The Lages bioenergy plant is fuelled with biomass and reaches an installed capacity of 28 MW and 25t/h of steam generation.

Process water is key to the power generation process and is used in steam turbine or cooling towers. The contact aims to optimize the facility's reliability to achieve the steam and electricity production objectives of Tractebel Energia.

Last week the World Bank launched an initiative called Thirsty Energy to help power and water utilities communicate better when scaling up water and power projects (see WWi story).

In 2013, Degremont was awarded the engineering and procurement contract with Duro Felguera in Argentina, for a demineralization installation to equip a power plant in Vuelta de Obligado.
