Project Details


The Sul thermoelectric plant (UTE Sul) will feature two generation units designed for 323.5MW each, using coal from the Seival mine. The plant is owned by Eneva, formerly known as MPX. UTE Sul, running exclusively on Brazilian coal, will be connected to the national grid (SIN) for distribution of the energy produced by the plant. For transmission of the energy produced, a 239 kv, 10km transmission line will be built to connect the plant to a substation that will be installed close to the Presidente Médici Substation. The preliminary permit for the project (LP), attesting to its environmental feasibility and establishing the requirements to be met in subsequent stages, was issued in November 2009 for a capacity of 600MW and was later amended to the current 727MW by the Brazilian federal environmental protection agency (IBAMA), representing an important milestone for UTE Sul, enabling the sale of plant power in the regulated market (ACR) and/or the free market (ACL).
