Water crisis brings William Arjona plant back into operation

The William Arjona hydroelectric plant, located in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, had been shut down in 2017 on the grounds that high costs were generated by the use of natural gas. Now, it had to be reconnected due to the risk of water scarcity. The plant, which in 2019 was purchased by Delta Energia, has the capacity to supply 190 MW (megawatt) and generates a cost of R$ 1,500 per megawatt-hour.

The thermoelectric, which is only triggered when necessary, practically had to start again from scratch, since according to the president of Delta, Luiz Fernando Leone Vianna, only two employees carried out the maintenance of the place at the time the purchase was made. The plant is expected to remain in operation until at least the end of this year.
