If approved by the Ministry of the Environment, Portuguese Environment Agency and the North Regional Coordination and Development Commission, the structure will be installed in Pinhal do Conde, in the parish of São João de Ver, and will aim to produce clean energy for distribution by the national electricity grid.
The company responsible for the project is FF Ventures – FFNEV Portugal Lda., which, as revealed to Lusa by the president of the Feira Chamber, expects to reach “a production of 40,500 Megawatts per hour each year”.
This wil be a nightmare for wildlife!

Another very poor decision made by an obtuse government! A typical 1,000 MW (megawatt) nuclear power plant needs a little bit more than 2.6 square kilometres to operate. Wind farms require 360 times more land to produce the same amount of electricity and solar photovoltaic plants require 75 times more space! The largest Portuguese hydro power plant (Alto Lindoso no Rio Lima) produces about 630 MW. The largest nuclear power plant in the world is Japanese and has a net capacity of about 8,000 MW.
