Sponsored by

The Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (ANEEL) picked Abengoa for a new electricity transmission project in Brazil. The contract, which is worth about $524 million, will enable part of the country's energy demand to be supplied in an efficient and sustainable way.

 

Abengoa will be responsible for the engineering, design, construction, maintenance and commissioning of the two transmission lines, which will cover 234 miles, ensuring the highest levels of quality at every stage. Both lines are expected to come into operation in 2017.

The first concession relates to a 150-mile transmission line from Oriximina–Juruti and Juruti–Parintins in the state of Para as well as construction of four substations in the municipalities of Oriximina, Juruti, Parintins and Jurupari. The second concession includes the 85-mile Parauapebas–Integradora Sossego, Integradora Sossego–Xinguara II transmission line and three substations.

Abengoa has carried out other projects for the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency in the past, most significantly Manaos and Norte Brasil, as well as seven projects won during 2013 that total more than 3,541 miles of transmission lines and that are in different stages of development.
