Angra 3 NPP Electronuclear
Electrical-mechanical project for Eletronuclear in Brazil
Description of project:
Angra 3, with an installed capacity of 1350 MW, is part of the Brazilian array of NPPs covering 3% of Brazil’s total energy needs. The power plants are located in Rio de Janeiro, near Angra dos Reis. Currently, Eletronuclear, the government’s nuclear company, is working to complete Angra 3 by 2018.
The role of ÅF is to design the complex electromechanical systems using PDS software to create 3D models of all parts, as well as generate the 2D drawings to be used in the construction. The revenue will amount to US$100 million over the duration of the 7 year contract. The eletromechanical project is under the responsibility of ÅF in Finland. The ÅF offices in Brazil and Finland work together in close cooperation to assure a successful outcome of the project.
