Alstom Wins €100 Million Wind Energy Transmission Contract In Brazil

A consortium led by Alstom has won a major order to expand transmission capability of the power network in Brazil as the South American country gets ready for expansion of its renewable energy infrastructure.

Alstom has been awarded the €100 million contract by Eletrosul Centrais Electricas S/A to integrate wind energy projects in Brazil with the transmission network. The projects are located in Rio Grande do Sul State.

Alstom will provide two new substations and expand six existing substations. The project is expected not only to integrate the upcoming wind energy projects but also other renewable energy projects to be announced and implemented in the future. Alstom will supply its products, software, and automation technologies with equipment produced locally at Canoas and Itajuba sites in Brazil.

Brazil is all set to significantly increase its renewable energy generation capabilities. Recently, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff announced that her country will increase the share of renewable energy in country’s energy mix to 20% by 2030. Last year, project developers had offered to set up more than 600 wind energy projects with a total installed capacity of 15,350 MW.
