New projects by the Indian Company aim to integrate the generation of renewable energy to the hydro and thermal matrix in the Brazilian energy matrix, understand the company's numbers and short-term plans in the country

In the recently concluded auction of transmission projects in Brazil, Sterlite Power emerged as the winner of lot 13. The project will require an investment of US$ 0,6 billion over the next 3 to 5 years in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul from the country. This addition increases Sterlite Power's portfolio to 10 projects.

Speaking about Brazil, the company's investment in the region, Sterlite Power group CEO Pratik Agarwal said: “We are proud and honored to be part of the growth story in Brazil. Our drive to work on the toughest transmission projects that strengthen humanity was the cornerstone of our journey in Brazil, we feel committed to the region and look forward to delivering the new project ahead of schedule. ”

Rui Chammas, CEO of Sterlite Power in Brazil, said: “We are happy to have won this project in the current auction. I must congratulate ANEEL for providing a visible pipeline of projects and for the transparent way of conducting these auctions. Sterlite Power is committed to delivering these projects ahead of schedule, leveraging a world-class partner network and local team.”

Brazil's transmission system needs to add significant capacity to manage the transition in the generation footprint: from a hydro and thermal base load to renewable generation.
