Uruguay, Brazil Sign Electricity-Sharing Agreements

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay and Brazil have signed agreements to exchange electric power, the Uruguayan government said Tuesday.

The heads of the respective state-controlled utilities, Uruguay’s UTE and Brazil’s Eletrobras, signed the agreements in Rio de Janeiro, according to a statement on the Web site of Uruguayan President Tabare Vazquez.

The process is to begin with testing of a 500 MW link between Melo, in northeastern Uruguay, and the southern Brazilian city of Candiota.

Under the pacts, UTE will supply surplus power to Eletrobras, subject to technical and safety standards and conditions.

Eletrobras said that once the interconnection tests are complete, “the possibility will be open” for permanent exchange of energy between Melo and Candiota.

The two companies are already collaborating on the construction in Uruguay of a $100 million, 65 MW wind-power facility and the establishment of a 70 MW connection between Rivera, Uruguay, and Livramento, Brazil.
