The Eletricas Brasileiras S/A (Eletrobras) is planning to undertake the construction of a 10682MW hydroelectric power plant along the rivers Tapajos and Jamanxim in the northern state of Para, nearly 71km southwest of Itaituba in Brazil.
The project involves the construction and operation of five power plants in the Madeira basin with a combined capacity of 10682MW. The five power plants are; Sao Luiz do Tapajos (6133MW); Jatoba (2338MW); Jamanxim (881MW); Cachoeira do Cai (802MW) and Cachoeira dos Patos (528 MW).
The project also includes construction of related infrastructure facilities like rock filled concrete dams, head and tailrace tunnels, powerhouses to install the turbines and substations, and laying of transmission lines.
Eletrobras had launched a public call for the purpose of convening partners to participate in the study of the hydroelectric plants at the basin of the Tapajos with last submission date as March 12, 2012.
EDF (Electricité de France) has signed joint venture to continue the study for the project.
Furnas signs an agreement with China Three Gorges International Corporation for the construction of hydroelectric Tapajós.
The group of Tapajós Study, coordinated by Eletrobras and with the participation of eight other companies among Eletronorte, GDF Suez, Cemig, and Camargo Corrêa, is responsible for research of environmental and engineering feasibility of São Luiz do the Tapajós and Jatoba hydroelectric plant development.
In August 2014, the group has submitted the environmental feasibility report to Instituto Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente (IBAMA).
In March 2015, IBAMA rejected the environmental impact study report of São Luiz do Tapajós plant.
In September 2017, IBAMA rejected the environmental impact study report of São Luiz do Tapajós plant.
In January 2018, The National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) has received the feasibility studies of the Jatobá hydroelectric dam.
Study works are underway.
The project involves the construction of a 10682MW hydroelectric power plant along the rivers Tapajos and Jamanxim in the northern state of Para, nearly 71km southwest of Itaituba in Brazil.
The US$16,000 million project also includes the following:
1. Construction of Sao Luiz do Tapajos Power Station with 6133MW
2. Construction of Jatoba Power Station with 2338MW
3. Construction of Jamanxim Power Plant with 881MW
4. Construction of Cachoeira do Cai Power Plant with 802MW
5. Construction of Cachoeira dos Patos station with 528MW
