HydroVision Brasil, DistribuTECH Brasil And POWER-GEN Brasil Announce Furnas As Host Utility For 2013.

SAO PAULO, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PennWell Corporation announced today that Furnas will be the Host Utility for HydroVision Brasil, DistribuTECH Brasil and POWER-GEN Brasil to be jointly held September 24-26, 2013 at the Transamerica Expo Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Furnas is a major subsidiary of Eletrobras in charge of generation and transmission of electric power in the southeast region of the country. It is currently comprised of 15 hydro plants, 2 thermal plants, 52 substations and roughly 20,000 Km of high voltage transmission lines. New power plants, including wind power plants, and new transmission lines will be integrated into the electric system within the next few years.  Over 40% of the energy consumed in Brazil passes through the Furnas Electric System.


"We are pleased to present Furnas as our Host Utility for the three events and look forward to providing the Brazilian energy market with a unique event designed to bridge the industry sectors together under one roof.  Meeting the challenges of tomorrow, HydroVision Brasil, DistribuTECH Brasil  and POWER-GEN Brasil will bring together thought leaders and experts across the hydropower, transmission and distribution, and power generation sectors for three days of in-depth discussion about the topics surrounding the sustainability and continued expansion of these growing markets. The unique co-location of these events provides the energy industry with an integrated international platform, offering valuable opportunities for information exchange, networking and new business development across the market sectors," said Mrs. Marla Barnes, Group Publisher of PennWell's Hydro Group.

Expecting an international attendance of more than 2,500 energy executives and decision makers and more than 200 exhibiting companies, HydroVision Brasil, DistribuTECH Brasil and POWER-GEN Brasil will focus on the practical issues and solutions most critical to the success and continued growth of the Brazilian power industry.
