August 6 (Renewables Now) – Brazilian utility company Neoenergia SA (BVMF:NEOE3) has received the go-ahead from Rio Grande do Sul’s environmental protection agency Fepam to start construction of a transmission line for the distribution of wind power generated in the state.
Named Povo Novo-Guaiba 3 (C3), the project calls for the construction of a 525-kV transmission line with a length of 235.5 km (146.3 miles) between the cities of Rio Grande and Eldorado do Sul, the state government announced on Thursday.
The project has received an environmental impact assessment (EIA) and environmental impact report (RIMA).
C3 is part of Neoenergia’s Lagoa dos Patos transmission bundle, secured through a tender held by power sector watchdog Aneel in 2018.
In all, Lagoa dos Patos will spread throughout 11 municipalities — Camaqua, Capao do Leao, Cerro Grande do Sul, Cristal, Eldorado do Sul, Mariana Pimentel, Pelotas, Rio Grande, Sertao Santana, Sao Lourenco do Sul and Turucu.
