EPM continues with the technical progress at Hidroituango, whose construction is at 86.5% as of November 30th this year.
The company reported the arrival of the last of the four pieces that make up the stator, thus initiating the assembly of this important equipment for the project, Valora Analitik reported.
The stator is a large piece of equipment that is key to power generation, as it is used in the process of transforming mechanical energy into electrical energy.
The stators of each of the Hidroituango generation units are manufactured in the city of Taubaté, in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, by the supplier GE Renewable Energy (General Electric).
“EPM advances in the recovery of the Ituango Hydroelectric Project, a work that will supply 17% of the energy that Colombia needs to continue growing, considering that the entry into operation is important for the country’s energy security and risk mitigation for the communities located downstream of the dam,” EPM highlighted.
Bottom-Line: Good news amidst the constant controversy surrounding the project and EPM’s management decisions.
