Gathering a nice collection of images on the hydro power plant Paulo Afonso I, the first project of the Companhia Hidro Elétrica do São Francisco – Chesf, this book reveals meaningful aspects of the work that contributed so much for the electrification of the Northeast region. Paulo Afonso I represented the initial milestone of the company’s great achievements. The works in the location started in 1948 and the plant started operating in 1955, with 180 MW of power. First of the five plants in the Paulo Afonso complex, this hydro power plant changed radically the scenario of energy supply in the Northeast, boosting the regional development process.
