Underwater cables bring solid energy to Marajó
Firm and quality electrical energy: some of the basic requirements for citizens to enjoy a better quality of life and begin to see endless opportunities for development. The starting point for this reality is already present was given last week, when Celpa inaugurated the substation of Ponta de Pedras, in the Island of Marajó.
The work is part of the second stage of the connection of the Island to the National Interconnected System and occurs through two circuits of underwater cables. With a length of approximately 17 kilometers, in each circuit, the cables connect the substation of Vila do Conde, in Barcarena, the new substation of Ponta de Pedras, which should benefit more than 30 thousand people in the municipality.
The president of Celpa, Nonato Castro, celebrated the feat. "We are taking a big step towards development and progress. The technology of underwater cables is unprecedented in the State and, together with the construction of substations and distribution network, provides quality electricity and will enable internet providers to make investments that aim to expand and improve the service. This should boost the generation of jobs and income in the region, "said Nonato.
This initial part of the interconnection work has an investment of approximately R $ 60 million, which includes the expansion and construction of substations and the construction of 36 kilometers of networks, being approximately 17 kilometers underwater. This interconnection via the river is part of a larger project in Marajó, whose total investment is around R $ 242 million and also includes the construction of eight new substations and 794 kilometers of network, which will benefit municipalities such as Soure, Salvaterra, Cachoeira do Arari, Santa Cruz do Arari, Anajás, Chaves, Afuá, São Sebastião da Boa Vista and Muaná.
Among the improvements that the work brings to the region, is the substitution of the sources of electricity generation that serve the municipalities of the Island. The thermal plants that supply these cities will be gradually deactivated with the entry into operation of the underwater cables and other works, which involve new substations and transmission lines. Thus, thermal generation will give rise to a source of water generation, as the work will take electricity from the National Interconnected System to these locations and will directly benefit about 450,000 people living in the archipelago.
The first phase of the project, known as Marajó I, completed in 2013, received investment in the order of R $ 179.5 million, applied in the expansion of two and construction of six new substations, in addition to the construction of 685 kilometers of network. This first phase served the municipalities of Portel, Melgaço, Curralinho, Breves, Baião and Bagre.
In addition to electricity, this infrastructure will be responsible for bringing high-speed internet to the Island, as Celpa also made possible a fiber optic structure in the project, responsible for the transmission of data allowing the island of Marajó to be interconnected to the public Internet network.
They are 24 pairs of fiber with 10.7mm of total diameter. This represents high-speed data transport, providing transmission rates of the order of 40 Gbps. The first municipality in the archipelago to receive Internet via fiber optic is Ponta de Pedras.
