ILLUMINATING THE BELO MONTE PROJECT Seventy Terex® RL 4000 light towers sold to Deltamaq, in Pará, will help illuminate the construction worksite of Belo Monte's hydroelectric power plant.

B

elo Monte's hydroelectric power plant, which is being built on the Xingu River within Altamira's region in Pará State, is one of the most important ongoing projects in the North region of the country. After its completion, it shall produce about 4.500 MW per year, which represents approximately 10% of Brazil’s national consumption. In terms of installed power, Belo Monte will be the third largest hydroelectric power plant in the world and the largest one in Brazil. To speed up the project, the contracting firm responsible to build the plant acquired a total of 70 Terex RL 4000 light towers. The light towers are towable and equipped with a telescopic boom and a manual winch. They have an adjustable head to position light exactly where it is needed and provide a lighting area of 7.50 ha and 4000 W. The light towers were acquired through Deltamaq, a Terex distributor within the State of Pará. Deltamaq has stood out as a top quality service provider in the distribution of machinery, parts, technical support and rental of equipment. Headquartered in Ananindeua, in the metropolitan area

of Belém, the company also has branches in Maranhão, Amapá, Amazonas, Roraima, Rondônia and Acre. Currently, the light towers are being transported from Belém to the Belo Monte work site. According to Mário Moreira Nóbrega, Director of Deltamaq, the key benefits that the light towers provide are agility and versatility. "By using the Terex light towers, it will be possible to extend the work shifts, thus contributing to the completion of the project within the established time," explains Nóbrega. In order to provide full support to the contracting firm building Belo Monte's power plant, Deltamaq will open a branch in the region as the project is estimated to last for 7 years. ■
