A-5 auction hires 14 plants and ensures investments of R$ 6 billion in the country


The A-5 Energy Auction, held 30 of April 2015, hired 1,973 megawatts of installed capacity from 14 projects.

The result ensures power delivery starting in January 2020 and will mean investments of nearly R$ 6 billion in the country. In all, the auction generated R $ 67.4 billion in contracts.

The natural gas thermal power plant will have over 1500 MW capacity and will be installed at the Port of Sergipe, with estimated cost of R $ 3.2 billion. The fuel which will be used is LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas).

For the president of the Energy Research Company – EPE, Mauricio Tolmasquim, the event was a success:

“Hiring thermal power is critical to bring security to the Brazilian electrical system,” said Tolmasquim, noting that in the case of thermal project in Sergipe will also include the construction of a regasification terminal in the Port of Sergipe. “The regasification plant is important for the country, which already has other Petrobras terminals in Rio de Janeiro, Bahia and Ceará. For the electricity sector, the LNG plant is complementary when you have hydropower”, he said.
