Prumo in an interview reported that the Thermoelectric and LNG terminals will transform Porto do Açú into a national reference and the most important in Rio
O Port of Açu once again is featured in national and world press due to the management of Bob. As one of the most complete projects currently in Rio de Janeiro with offshore terminals, merchant import/export and metalworking industry within the enterprise today, the company's shareholder base trembled with optimism when it was announced the contracts for the thermoelectric works that are currently taking place.
As happened in Macaé in 1977, the city only had 60 thousand inhabitants when it was founded and suffered a population “BOOM” when it was founded in the Campos Basin and installed by Petrobras in the city. Consequently, the municipality of São João da Barra, where the Port of Açu is installed will have the same impact. Municipal bodies are already mobilizing, but there is still concern about the city's infrastructure, after all, not long ago, the place was affectionately called "Paradise", due to the beautiful strongholds and paradisiacal beaches.
Prumo Logística manages a similar project in the port of Antwerp, in Belgium, which also has a 1.7GW thermoelectric plant. The power that will be installed in Açú is a little more ambitious, about 6.4W to take care of the energy supply in all the companies installed in the complex and others that are yet to be installed. The gas that will make the plant work will come from the pre-salt layer and the rest to the LNG terminals, for companies that do not use the fuel in their operational processes, perhaps the surplus will be supplied to the population at fairer prices.
The president of Prumo in Brazil, José Magela, has ambitious plans in addition to those already underway, with the implementation of a wind farm in the region in the future, since the city is on the coast and this type of project is completely favorable and will be on the agenda. in the future. Some of the companies that are installed in Porto do Açú at the moment are National Oilwell Varco (NOV), TechnipFMC, Wärtsilä, InterMoor, Edison Chouest, Vallourec, BP Prumo, Anglo American, BG Brasil, Oil Tanking, among others.
