In recent years, mainly after the energy rationing of 2001, Brazil started to regard the necessary significance of diversifying generation sources of energy within its energy matrix composition. In a country with large hydric sources, and strongly dependent of the hydrologic regimen plus the water accumulation in its main hydrographic basins, it is fundamental that there be a diversification of fuel in the generation of energy.
The thermoelectric energy in this environment is ever more inserted and emphasized, along with a diversity of sources such as biomass, coal, fuel oil, natural gas and liquefied natural gas. The thermal energy basis increases the assurance and secures the hydroelectric energy, allowing a better management of reservoirs and enhancement of the energy transmission grid.
OMEGA Engineering has the expertise, tradition and a strong bias in the thermoelectric sector. We participate of various thermal projects, thermoelectricity and co-generation, and we also act strongly in the elaboration of the regulatory base, currently existing in the country, and which allowed a strong expansion of thermoelectric projects in the Brazilian matrix. Acting within the negotiation of fuel contracts or in the conception and implantation of projects, OMEGA can very much amass in intelligence and expertise, which makes all the difference in project economic feasibility.
