Project Details


The Linhão Teles Pires transmission project seeks to link the Teles Pires hydro plant to the national power grid. Chinese company State Grid was the winner of the auction for the transmission line. The company successfully made a bid in partnership with Copel Paraná for lots A and B, involving transporting power generated by the Teles Pires complex in Mato Grosso state. The lots taken by the company totalled 1,617km of transmission lines and five substations in the states of Mato Grosso, Goiás and Minas Gerais.
