Consortium to build 240 MW thermal power plant in Brazil

Mar 13, 1998 01:00 AM

The Fortaleza Energia consortium, teamed by Texaco, CSN, Companhia Textil Elizabeth do Nordeste (owned by the Vicunha group) and Taquari Energetica, succeeded in the auction arranged by the Ceara state government (Brazil) to have a 240-MW, natural gas-powered thermoelectric plant built in the state. The plant will cost $ 200 mm and will be built near the Pecem port, where CSN and Nuccor Steel will invest $ 700 mm to build a steel mill that will produce 1.2 mm tons of steel mill products per year. This plant will also be natural gas-powered. The fuel will be supplied by Petrobras and transported by a 323-km gas pipeline between Rio Grande do Norte and Ceara. Fortaleza Energia bidded an energy sale price of R$ 35.93 per MWh. The energy will be sold to state-owned Coelce (Companhia Energetica do Ceara) over a 20-year term. Coelce's privatisation is scheduled for early April, 1998.
