Andritz and the controversial Belo Monte Dam

Andritz supplies equipment to the highly controversial Belo Monte Dam in Brazil. For over 20 years, indigenous groups and social movements have been opposing the construction of the dam. The Belo Monte project proposes to divert 80% of the flow of the Xingu River and devastate an extensive area of Brazilian rainforest, displacing over 20,000 people and threatening the survival of indigenous peoples and other traditional communities.1 ))
