Madrid, Spain-based IT manager Telvent announced yesterday that it will implement its management, control, operations and telecommunications technology system, in the Colinas-Sobradinho 500 kV high voltage transmission line, in Brazil.

This project is part of the Brazilian Government investment plan, utilizing the National Electrical Energy Agency (ANEEL), for consolidating the energy transmission network in the country.

According to Manuel Sanchez Ortega, Telvent’s Chairman, “With this project, Telvent consolidates its operations and leadership position in the energy transmission sector in Brazil. Telvent has been firmly established in Brazil since 1991, having completed more than 20 relevant contracts with companies such as Furnas, Eletronorte and Ons.”


The projects that have been carried out in this country include the following installations: system for supervision, protection and digital control for the electrical substations in Maranhão; distribution management system (DMS) and automation of the electrical distribution centers in Rio de Janeiro; traffic system safety and control technology for the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte; control, management and toll systems on motorways in São Paulo; data acquisition, monitoring and control systems for oil and gas pipelines in the cities of São Paulo, Salvador, Recife and Rio de Janeiro.
