Canadian Ambassador Visits Itaipu Dam in Paraguay

The Canadian Ambassador to Paraguay and Argentina, Robert Fry, visited The Itaipu Dam to strengthen bilateral relations between Canada and Paraguay. The focus of Mr. Fry’s business development mission was to present the capabilities of Canadian participants as potential investors, partners, or suppliers to Paraguayan government officials.

Juan Jose Aveiro (MHI’s Project Manager in Paraguay) was part of the delegation, along with representatives from Hydro Quebec.

“This event was a great official introduction to the Paraguayan Government,” said Mr. Aveiro. “We were able to showcase MHI’s experience, and obtain a joint project opportunity with the Paraguayan Government and Hydro Quebec.”

MHI is working in Paraguay to perform an integral diagnosis on the condition and operation of the equipment of the Acaray Hydroelectric dam, including generation and operating procedures. MHI will be providing a strategic investment plan to improve and modernize the dam, considering the possibility of generation increase.
