Jirau Hydropower Plant
Porto Velho, Brazil
Located on the Madeira River in northwestern Brazil, the Jirau Hydropower
Project will have a capacity of 3,750 megawatts generated by 46 turbines.
Construction is being undertaken by a consortium of companies that includes
Camargo Corrêa to design, construct, and operate one of the largest
hydropower plants in the world that will ultimately supply energy for more than
10 million families.
Using Project Wise allowed Camargo Corrêa to implement a controlled and
transparent workflow and deploy a decentralized workforce of 200 users, all
of which reduced approval time of documents and contracts up to 17 days and
decreased work accidents by approximately 3 percent. Project Wise’s real-time
management information for decision making enabled the firm to participate in
the second biggest hydropower plant under construction in Brazil.
Located on the São Marcos River in central Brazil, the USD 400 million Serra do
Facão Hydroelectric plant will provide energy to a region experiencing a high
level of economic growth. Development of the facility posed a challenge for the
multidisciplinary project team, which was geographically dispersed throughout
the local site engineering office, project partners, and the contract owner.
The solution was to use the collaborative technology of Project Wise, which
reduced travel time and provided team members with access to the right
information in real time. Project Wise reduced total project time by an estimated
