Our Plants

We believe that true value generation is when we seek the reduction of environmental impacts and a sustainable development where our partners, customers and society all win. In this sense, diversification of sources is essential.

Tour plants validate our focus on clean and sustainable energy: we have hydraulic, solar and wind power sources in our energy matrix.

All our stations will be remotely operated by our Power Generation Operations Center, located in Bauru, in the state of São Paulo.

We are a global reference in asset management, and in 2013 we were elected the first company to receive the PAS 55 certification – International Asset Management Certification – in Latin America.
