July 31 (Renewables Now) - Brazil's power sector regulator Aneel approved on Tuesday a photovoltaic (PV) project from the A-4 energy auction held on April 4, 2018 with the capacity to produce 9.1 average megawatts (MWa).

The approved scheme, Sertao Solar Barreiras V, replaces a project by the Sao Pedro e Paulo consortium which has been disqualified.

Barreiras V is owned by a consortium formed by Steelcons Empreiteira Construcao Civil Ltda and Sertao Brasil Energia Solar Eireli.

In June Aneel said that only three winners from the 2018 A-4 auction had not yet secured the green light.

In all, the A-4 tender awarded 1,024.5 MW of clean power supply contracts from solar, wind, biomass and hydropower plants. Electricity supply is scheduled to commence on January 1, 2022, Aneel noted.
