Off-grid community is powered with hybrid power
A unique power plant in the Brazilian rainforest combines three energy sources and provides 24,000 people with green and reliable power.
Training, fast feedback and sparring
To make sure that Voltalia’s team was familiar with the solution from DEIF, a training session focusing on AGC-4 and utility software was conducted at DEIF do Brasil’s premises in Sao Paolo.
“Working with DEIF is a really great experience. We have had good feedback from the team in Sao Paolo. We always get quick replies to our questions, and we are guaranteed good service. DEIF is a great company that can provide everything that you need for an efficient hybrid power management system,” concludes Leonardo.
Renewables will cover 90% of the energy demand
Voltalia is planning to construct a 7,5 MW run-of-river hydropower plant in Oiapoque. The plant is expected to be ready at the beginning of 2023 and will further bring down the diesel consumption, providing the community even greener energy. DEIF controllers will integrate the thermal/solar plant with the hydropower plant. Once the hydropower plant is up and running, Voltalia expects that renewables will cover up to 90% of Oiapoque’s energy demand.
