Sterlite Power celebrates the kickoff of operations in the Arcoverde project May 9th, in Pernambuco. This is the first of 10 projects assigned to the company in Brazil. Arcoverde Project covers 139 km of power lines and three substations to boost wind energy power transmission in the Pernambuco region.
After the company won the project through transmission and began construction works in May 2018, the Arcoverde project, which boasts 400 MVA in power. The group of assets within the Arcoverde project expand coverage in the Pernambuco outback region, reinforces the system and covers the growing power demand in the region. According to Rui Chammas, CEO of Sterlite Power in Brazil, “We’re confident about our operations in Brazil and for delivering the first project 28 months ahead of the schedule set by ANEEL, thanks to the hard work of our highly qualified team and our operational engineering excellence, as well as the commitment of our partners. This project showcases how infrastructure can help the National Integrated System – in this case supplying the Northeast region with wind power.”
Pratik Agarwal, Group CEO, Sterlite Power, said, “It is a proud moment for us to deliver our first project in Brazil in record time, and this is possible because of immense hard work and support from our employees. Delivering Arcoverde only two years after Sterlite Power came to Brazil showcases our solid standing in the country.”
