Mr. Lv Shisen attends the groundbreaking ceremony of Brazil Belo Monte Ⅱ ±800kV UHVDC project of State Grid

The groundbreaking ceremony of Brazil Belo Monte ±800kV UHV Transmission Project was held in the Rio construction site successfully on September 28th, 2017.Mr. Lv Shisen, vice president of EPPEI, was invited to attend the ceremony.



Fernando(the Minister of Brazil Energy and Mining), Song Yang (Minister of the State of Rio de Janeiro, Minister of the Chinese Embassy in Brazil), Kou Wei (General Manager of China State Grid Corporation) attended the ceremony and delivered speeches. Besides, Mayor Ferreira, representatives of Brazil Electricity Regulatory Bureau, Brazil National Center, National Development Bank, Electric Power Planning and Engineering Institute (EPPEI) also attended the ceremony.


The project of Brazil Belo Monte Ⅱ is the power transmission project of the second largest hydropower station in Brazil- Belo Monte hydropower station (installed capacity of 11 million kilowatts) .The project, expected to be completed in the end of 2019, consists of 2518km transmission line (the longest power transmission line in South America) and two converter stations, with total investment about 9.6 billion Real. The clean electricity resources in northern Brazil are expected to transport directly to the southeast load center by this project.


For this project, EPPEI undertook the preliminary design review and consultation work of the converter station and the grounding pole. As the first overseas UHV consultation project for EPPEI, it was a great innovative practice transplanting the experience of domestic UHV projects to overseas ones. EPPEI, a state-level consulting agency, successfully completed this consulting work with world's highest level transmission technology of UHV DC (Ultra high voltage direct current) and AC (Alternating current) as well as well-planned and efficient organization, making further contributions to the implementation of "go global" strategy.
