China's State Grid builds "electricity super highway" in Brazil

  Brazil's latest power grid map, a new transmission line stretching from the northern state of Para's Belo Monte Dam in the deep Amazon basin to the southern economic centers will become the first "electricity super highway" in both the country and Latin America.

    This new 800kV ultra-high-voltage (UHV) direct current (DC) transmission project, with a designed length of over 2,000 kilometers, was launched in May by the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) as a model of bilateral production capacity cooperation. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff witnessed the launch.

    Preliminary construction work is still underway. This line is the first UHV transmission project that the SGCC, China's largest power distributor, has won overseas, which marks a milestone in the "going-out" strategy for China's UHV technologies, the company said.
