⚡️ ITAIPU ⚡️
.
On our last day in Foz, we visited the hydroelectric dam, called Itaipu, which is being shared by Brazil and Paraguay.🇧🇷🇵🇾 .  Even though my mood that day wasn’t the best, here are some interesting facts I picked up:
.
1️⃣ Around 40k people in total helped to build everything starting in the 80s. The company even built a city next to the station just for the workers to live in as it was so far from everything. 👨🏽‍🚒
.
2️⃣ Paraguay and Brazil share the produced energy in Itaipu by 50/50. As Paraguay doesn’t need the full 50%, they are selling the rest to Brazil.
.
Brazil nowadays is using around 80% of all the energy produced in Itaipu. This amount only supplies 17% of the whole energy Brazil actually needs.
.
The 20% left for Paraguay covers around 90% of the whole energy that Paraguay needs. .  Finally, Brasil is a very sustainable country already when it comes to energy as 70% of whole Brazil’s energy actually comes from hydropower, which is pretty impressive.⚡️
.
3️⃣ Itaipu produces enough energy for the whole world for 40 days. 🌎
.
4️⃣ It is the second largest hydroelectric power station in the world. China has the biggest one. 💦
.
5️⃣ They currently working on a university inside the Itaipu area. 🏢
.
Do things like this usually interest you or not too much?🙃
