Sterlite Power, a private-sector power transmission developer and solutions provider, has announced the commissioning of its sixth power transmission project, Marituba, in Brazil.

Built with an investment of INR 1,600 crore ($195 million), Project Marituba involved developing a 344 km long 500kV transmission corridor connecting Brazil’s largest hydropower plant at Tucuruí to the metropolitan region of Belém to deliver up to 1 GW of green energy. 

Sterlite Power has built a significant footprint in Brazil, acquiring 13 projects through the greenfield global auction process. Currently, the company has a strong portfolio of eight power transmission projects, of which it has developed six projects, spanning approximately 2,000 km of transmission lines and 22 substations.

The Marituba project is fully integrated with the Brazilian National Grid. Located in the Amazon region, it is the largest power transmission project executed by Sterlite Power Brazil. “It has traversed 15 cities and 27 Quilombola Afro-Brazilian communities and has created more than 2000 jobs in the region, positively impacting the Brazilian economy and its people,” stated Sterlite Power.
