Electricity consumption in Brazil has grown strongly since 1990. Per capita consumption is 2235 kWh/yr. Nuclear energy provides four percent of the country´s electricity - about 13 billion kWh per year.
In 1970 the government decided to seek bids for an initial nuclear plant. The turnkey contract for Angra-1 was awarded to Westinghouse, and construction started in 1971 at a coastal site between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
Angra-1 suffered continuing problems with its steam supply system and was shut down for some time during its first few years. Its lifetime load factor over the first 15 years was only 25%, but since 1999 it has been much better. Angra-2 has performed well.
The 1224 MWe Angra-3 unit was part of the
same contract as Angra-2 and was designed to be a twin of it. While 70% of the equipment is on site, construction has not started. Eletrobras is seeking a private partner with $1.8 billion to complete it and as of mid 2006, government resolve to complete it appears to be firming.
