The Jirau Hydroelectric Plant reached an important milestone of its construction: two million cubic meters (m³) used since November 2009. In comparative terms, this quantity would be enough to build twice the twelve stadiums for the 2014 Football World Cup that will be held in Brazil.
The number achieved on October 23 is the result of the accelerated pace of civil works – of which 70% are completed – and represents the force of Brazilian engineering.
The social inclusion actions at the work site of the Jirau Hydroelectric Plant, in Porto Velho (RO), and at the work site of the Railroad and Maritime Terminals of Ponta da Madeira, in São Luís (MA), were highlighted at the 3rd Award of Institute Pró-Cidadania de Responsabilidade Social, which was granted on October 24, in São Paulo.
