Uruguay and Brazil interconnection to be completed this year

Uruguay’s Minister of Industry Roberto Kreimerman told local newspaper El Pais that the electricity interconnection with Brazil will be completed in the second half of this year.

Kreimerman admitted that plans have been delayed with respect to the previously announced date but he feels optimism with the progress of the work.

The interconnection system between Brazil and Uruguay will have a capacity of 500 MW.

Although the Uruguayan government will invest about $350m in this project, it creates the opportunity to make potential annual savings of approximately $200m.

Uruguay could sell electricity to Brazil via the interconnection.
