EXPO 2000 Paraguay - Booth

Hall 21


Paraguay. South America. One booth. One look. And then a huge picture with water and a dam "Staustufe" in the background. That's what I like. And on asking what that was, we were soundly surprised. A young woman in white explained us in detail how Paraguay uses the power of water. And that is really worth knowing!

These people, about 8,8 Mio., have an affluent amount of energy at hand. They build a dam "Staustufe" in a river, in which they implemented turbine after turbine, 18 altogether. Two of these turbines produce as much energy as one of our atomic power plants. They therefore replace nine! NINE! of our power plants (wouldn't that be something, Mr. Trittin?). And the best thing about is, Paraguay only needs the energy of two of those turbines, the rest is sold. If that isn't an impressive contribution to the EXPO 2000 theme "human, nature and technology"!

They also run a movie about this topic, that deeply impressed me. And I would also like to thank the staff of Paraguay's booth: they attended german schools and can therefore speak german fluently. I hope you'll have many nice encounters with visitors from all over the world, that are open-minded and carry home your very convincing way to produce energy while protecting the environment at the same time. Thanks a lot!

Since I was so impressed I wasn't able to concentrate on taking pictures. The few rather bad pictures shouldn't prevent you from having a good look at Paraguay's booth.
