Madrid, September 28 (EFE). – Elecnor, through its Brazilian subsidiary, is building a 200-kilometre transmission line in that country for €18.5 million, which is necessary to ensure that the photovoltaic parks in the north of Minas Gerais state are connected to the integrated national energy system.
As Elecnor reported on Tuesday, this project to integrate photovoltaic collectors, called Solaris, is being promoted by India’s Sterlite Power Transmission Limited.
The project will boost the 1.6 GW transmission network and help improve the economic development of that region of Brazil.
The first section to be built by Elecnor will operate between the municipalities of Janaúba and Jaíba, will be 93 kilometers long and will have a power of 230 kilovolts (Kv) from a dual circuit.
Regarding the second section, it will connect Pirapora with Três Marias via 112 kilometers of transmission line with 345 Kv of single circuit.
The development of the project, which is expected to come into operation in 2022, is expected to create about 640 jobs. EFE
