Against ons guidance, Petrobras asks to shut down plant

Petrobras failed to meet a requirement of the ONS (National Electric System Operator) and shut down the Três Lagoas plant, a 386 megawatt plant of power installed in Mato Grosso do Sul, which according to the state needs maintenance to avoid a catastrophic failure. The state-owned company informed the Operator in advance three days in advance in compliance with the standards of practice.

By decision of the ONS, many thermal plants (gas, coal, diesel and biomass) must remain connected due to the current scenario of water crisis. However, managers of the Electrical Sector Study Group (Gesel) of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) warn about the risks of stress in the structure of thermal plants, used uninterruptedly, and most were not planned to work daily for a long time.
