Gás Natural Açu (GNA), a subsidiary of Prumo Logística, completed the process to hire a consortium formed by Siemens and Andrade Gutierrez to build the first thermal power plant in the Port of Açu, named UTE GNA I. Negotiations between the companies wrapped up after Brazil’s electricity regulator ANEEL authorized the transfer of thermal power plant UTE Novo Tempo to UTE GNA I, a company tied to GNA. The consortium will be in charge of engineering, supply and construction of the plant, which will have about 1.3 GW capacity.
The implementation of the thermal power plant is one of the steps to form the Açu Gas Hub, a project that is being developed in the Açu Port Complex with the purpose of providing a logistics solution to receive, process, use and transport natural gas produced in the Campos and Santos basins, as well as to import and store LNG from abroad.
Construction of the first thermal power plant in the Port of Açu is expected to begin before the end of the first quarter. The Port of Açu’s Employability Network will recruit people to work in the construction of the plant, receiving resumés on e-mail currículo.firstname.lastname@example.org. Jobs available for direct hiring by GNA will be published on the portal vagas.com/prumologistica.
