After 17 years, Itaipu Binacional received, for the second time, the visit of the royal family of Denmark. The entourage, consisting of princes and princesses, was received on Sunday (31), at 14h30, at the Visitor Reception Center (CRV), by the executive finance director, Margaret Groff.
The Royalty was lodged inside the Iguaçu National Park. In 1999, the royal family had already visited the plant and planted a foot of jatobá.
The list of illustrious visitors at the plant is expected to increase further during the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. This is because other heads of state should take advantage of the trip to Foz do Iguaçu, home to the Iguassu Falls, one of Brazil's leading postcards, and the largest hydroelectric power plant in clean and renewable electricity production in the world.
Only for August is confirmed the arrival of the princess of Thailand and the president of Hungary. Foz do Iguaçu also consolidates itself as a glamorous destination.
The Danish delegation consists of Prince Joachim Holger Waldemar Christian, Princess Marie Agathe Odile, Prince Nikolai William Alexander Frederik, Prince Felix Henrik Valdemar Christian, Prince Henrik Carl Joachim Alain, Princess Athena Marguerite Françoise Marie, Colonel Soren Bo Bojesen and Monica Maria da Silva Madureira.
The royal family moves to 14h to the plant. At Itaipu, the princes and princesses will be received by the financial director. After planting the tree, the entourage will make the panoramic visit, which includes a pass in the Ecomuseum. The return to the hotel is planned for 17h.
