Feb 08, 2002 01:00 AM

Brazil's Rio de Janeiro state projects 2008 power generation of 64,192 GWh at a realistic prediction, and 81,509 GWh in an optimistic prediction, according to a report by the state's energy department.
Using the 16,222 GWh generated in 1999 as its base, the state government expects to increase natural gas-fired thermo generation 96.8 % through 2008 and nuclear generation 15.7 %. The optimistic prediction puts these figures at a possible 98.7 % and 22.5 %, respectively.

In the period analysed, hydraulic generation in Rio would increase only 1.7 %-2.9 %, the report said. In 1999, this form of generation accounted for 6,410 GWh, and expectations are for it to reach 6,528 GWh in 2005 and 7,431 GWh in 2008.
Natural gas-fired thermo generation was 69 GWh in 1999, and the projection for 2008 is 30,767 GWh, while nuclear generation was 3,977 GWh in 1999, and is expected to reach 14,739 GWh in 2008, with completion of the Angra 3 nuclear project (1,300 MW), added to Angra I (690 MW) and Angra II (1,300 MW).
