RETROSPECTIVE OF PREVIOUS CONTESTS The first Odebrecht Informa contest was held in 2010. In “Tell your Story at Odebrecht,” some 200 participants sent texts on their careers with the Organization. In 2011, the Organization promoted the contest “Photograph your Community.” In over 300 photos that were entered, Members portrayed cultural aspects of the cities in which they work and with which they normally interact. In 2012, the contest is once again photography-based. You can also participate by sending in photos showing the practice of sports in the community in which you live and work. / no. 282 / may 2012

First Turbine Installed at Manuel Piar Hydroelectric Power Plant In April, Odebrecht Venezuela installed the first Kaplan turbine at the Carlos Manuel Piar Hydroelectric Power Plant, located in Tocoma, in Bolívar State. According to Héctor Navarro, the country’s Electric Energy Minister, the turbine is one of the world’s most powerful, capable of generating 216 MW. “We have the Kaplan turbine in Venezuela, the most powerful in the world, whose technology is also being used in other Latin American countries,” said the minister during the event that marked the installation of the first piece of equipment. From July of this year to April 2014, workers will complete the mechanical assembly and operation of 10 turbines of the same type. Argenis Chávez, from the state-owned company Corporación Eléctrica Nacional (CORPOELEC), stated that the Hydroelectric Complex will have the total capacity to generate approximately 2,160 MW of energy, which will be added to the Venezuelan electrical system. The plant is also helping to promote the hydroelectric development of the Baixo Caroní Basin, also located in Bolivar State. With the operation of the Carlos Manuel Piar Hydroelectric Power Plant, Venezuela will reach a total of 17,000 MW of energy power.

Together, they fulfilled the promises made for having won the contest. The promotion was held at the start of March and involved the participation of 10,000 Corinthians Web users, who sent phrases via five different communication channels: Twitter, Facebook, the soccer club’s official website, TV Corinthians and Fiel Torcedor. Each phrase chosen was accompanied by a task. Carlos Fernandes, for example, praised the project workers and stated that he wanted to help them with the construction. Therefore, he served food to the workers at the construction site cafeteria, where he also had lunch with a group of Members.
