Vantaa, Finland, 22-May-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — The Assuruá Energia Solar PV power plant started to generate energy in the first quarter of 2018. Located in the city of Itaguaçu da Bahia (Bahia), the plant has an installed capacity of 30 Mwac.
Pöyry were selected as owner’s engineers and provided technical consulting services in project management and engineering. Part of the service on the Assuruá Energia Solar project was to model risk reduction, economic aspects and the overall high quality of the implementation. This included project revision, construction and erection supervision, commissioning supervision, financial monitoring, and contract administration. Pöyry was also responsible for the Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) supervision of the project.
Nilson Niero, Consulting, Energy, Infrastructure and Special Projects Director of Pöyry Brazil, explains that all stages of the project were completed on time and with the high quality standards expected by the client thanks to the excellent work and expertise of the technicians and engineers involved. “We are sure that this delivery is the beginning of a lasting and trustworthy relationship with the client,” he says.
Controlled by Vientos Solutions LLC, Assuruá Energia Solar has a 20-year power purchase agreement signed at the August 2015 auction held by ANEEL.
