Feb 04, 2009 01:00 AM

Brazil's transmission industry will need to invest reais 3 bn ($ 1.3 bn) in 2009-13 to build 2,500 km of transmission lines and 22 substations included in the government's plans. The government will begin to auction the projects this year, federal energy planning company EPE said.
The mid-west region will receive most of the investments with reais 1 bn, followed by the southeast (reais 998 mm), northeast (reais 516 mm), north (reais 260 mm) and south (reais 245 mm).

Investments to link Acre, Mato Grosso and Rondonia states will total reais 1 bn in the next five years. The government will host a transmission line auction in the first half of 2009 to ensure power supply to the region before the 3.3 GW Jirau and 3.15 GW Santo Antonio hydro plants come online.
São Paulo state will receive reais 442 mm in investments for the construction of five substations to avoid surcharges in the transmission system, EPE said. Five new transmission lines and three substations are scheduled to be built in Goias, which at reais 576 mm will attract more investments than any other state in the country.
