|Project Details||Installed power: 500 to 1000 MW|
Power generation: 3.334.056 MWh/ year
Flooded area: 50 a 100 km²
For the formation of the reservoir, an area of approximately 8,140 hectares was flooded, 90% of which is covered by primary forest. The area is also covered by forests at different stages of regeneration, among which 4235.50 hectares of forest of Araucaria which is a threatened species component of the Mata Atlântica (Forest). Out of this total area, the amount of 2077.45 hectares was primary vegetation and the remaining 2158.50 hectares of secondary forest in an advanced stage of regeneration.
The Mata Atlântica ecosystem is composed by a mosaic of forest formations with little more than 7% of the original forest cover, which is highly fragmented due to the predominantly coastal land occupation in Brazil.
The Mata Atlântica is an area of great biological diversity who has beyond 20,000 plant species, about 849 species of birds, 370 species of amphibians, 200 species of reptiles, 270 of mammals and about 350 species of fish, many of wich are threatened with extinction.
