Macaé thermoelectric offshore jobs

With the accelerated schedule for the definitive construction of Thermoelectric Macaé, the project is already in the final stretch to start activities

The Nossa Senhora de Fátima Thermoelectric Power Plant is one of the most awaited developments in the city of Macaé. When we say “most awaited” it is because in this vitamin of expectation, the construction of the TEMPOR (Port Terminal of Macaé) is also foreseen in the development project of the municipality. Returning to the thermoelectric subject, the date of the Public Hearing was scheduled for June 11th (Monday), at 6 pm at the Hotel Gran Nobile Macaé in Bairro da Glória. Amazingly, we didn't know about this event through the media, Facebook announcements or other communication vehicle, I simply opened the door of our house and there was the event banner hanging almost in front of my house door. Are you doubting? Check out the photo I took right away:

We were surprised by the coincidence naturally, just when we were looking for information about it. To close the coffin once and for all, we got in touch to check if the disclosure was going to proceed, good news was that it did. Just below, we are leaving some specifications of the Plant, on the day of the event we will be there to obtain even more detailed information, mainly on the issue of employability.


The project presented in this Environmental Impact Study - EIA, comprises the planning, implementation and operation of the Nossa Senhora de Fátima Thermoelectric Power Plant, including a Transmission Line and a dedicated Gas Pipeline, for the generation of electric energy with power, in full operation , of 1,355.4 MW (gross energy). The Plant will be located in Macaé, in the North Region of the State of Rio de Janeiro

Adopted Technologies

The generation process provides for the use of three (03) completely independent generation modules, each consisting of 1 gas turbine with bypass chimney, 1 recovery boiler and 1 steam turbine, allowing both open cycle operation (operating only the gas turbine and releasing the exhaust gases through the by-pass chimney) or in a combined cycle (operating the entire set, gas turbine, recovery boiler and steam turbine). The modules will have state-of-the-art technology from Siemens with SGT6-8000H “heavy-duty” gas turbines, which have an efficiency greater than 60% with low levels of atmospheric emissions.

Natural resources

natural gasl – Both natural gas from the Campos basin and treated at the UTGN station in Cabiúnas may be used, as well as gas from the Pre-Salt fields that arrive in Cabiúnas via the Route 2 pipeline. construction of a dedicated gas pipeline, with an approximate length of 17 km and a diameter of 12”, with the capacity to transport the estimated consumption of 4,770,000 m³/day.

Water – The water supply for the plant will be made from a catchment in the Macaé River, which is about 2 km away from the UTE site. For this purpose, a water main will be built, with about 2.5 km, connecting the catchment in the Macaé River to a structure for receiving raw water located on the plant's land. The volume of water required for the plant's operations is around 300 l/s, with around 100 l/s returned to the river after treatment.
