The project is reportedly intended to aid an effort to strengthen the inter-regional power transfer capability in Brazil. GE is to lead a consortium with Camargo Correa Equipamentos e Sistemas S.A. on the project, which is planned to be completed by the end of October 2003.
According to the company, the consortium will supply Extra High Voltage (EHV) electrical power transmission substations and fixed as well as thyristor-controlled series compensation (TCSC) systems. GE reported that it will also provide field-testing, training, and maintenance services.
The project’s goal is to deliver more energy to highly populated areas.
