GNA wants to play a relevant role in the gas and energy markets expansion in Brazil. For this, we are implementing the largest LNG-to-power complex in Latin America, around R$ 8 billion investment by 2023.
The venture will be composed of two thermoelectric plants in combined cycle (TPP GNA I and TPP GNA II), which together, will reach 3 GW of installed capacity. In addition to a LNG terminal with regasification up to 21 million cubic meters capacity per day.
GNA’s project is being built in Port of Açu. Operated by Prumo, it is one of the main port complexes in the country and it offers a series of logistics solutions for the Brazilian oil and gas market.
Siemens is one of the responsibles for the power plants construction, for the GNA power plants' equipments supply, such as gas and steam turbines and cooling boilers. The company will also provide long-term services and O&M for the plants. The natural gas, which will supply the plants, will be imported and provided by BP.
The plants will generate enough energy to meet 14 million households, the residential consumption equivalent in Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo states.
GNA aims to contribute to Brazilian energy security, increasing the natural gas supply, and enables new companies installation or the existing ones migration to Port of Açu, with reduced environmental impacts.
All these initiatives will promote the economic overheating in the North Fluminense region, Rio de Janeiro state and the entire country.
