Centro de Despacho Económico de Carga del Sistema Interconectado del Norte Grande (CDEC-SING), the operator of Chile’s northern grid, also presented a proposal for the implementation of 24 power transmission projects worth USD220 million to Chile’s energy commission, Comisión Nacional de Energía (CNE). Of these 24 projects, 17 are new projects or involve expansions necessary to facilitate the interconnection of the SING trunk system with that of the larger, central SIC grid. Costa Rica is also likely to use a USD500 million credit line from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to increase its renewable-energy capacity and to expand its transmission and distribution networks. Further, Colombian electricity transmission, road concession, and telecommunications company Interconexión Electrica (ISA) plans to invest COP9.49 trillion by 2020. Limited power availability and rising demand in Latin American countries provide vast investment opportunities to foreign investors also, which are capitalising on the shifting focus of policy makers towards establishing vast power transmission networks. In July 2015, State Grid Brazil Holding S.A. (SGBH), a Brazilian subsidiary of SGCC, won the concession for a second transmission line linking the Belo Monte hydroelectric power plant in collaboration with domestic companies Furnas Central Electric SA (Furnas) (24.5 per cent) and Centrais Elétricas do Norte do Brasil S.A. (Eletronorte) (24.5 per cent). The 11.2 GW Belo Monte power complex is located on the Xingu River in the northern state of Pará. Some of the other key foreign companies are Red Electrica Internacional SAU, which has won a concession contract for the Montalvo–Los Heroes 220 kV transmission line in Peru; Grupo Isolux Corsan, which was awarded the contract for the construction of a transmission line and a substation in Duran by strategic public company Corporación Electrica del Ecuador; Abengoa, which was awarded the engineering and construction projects for two new power transmission lines in Argentina worth USD49 million, and for the construction of four 230 kV transmission lines and two 230 kV substations in Chihuahua in Mexico; and Suzhou Furukawa Power Optic Cable Company Limited (SFPOC), which was awarded a contract to supply 980 km of optical ground wire (OPGW) cable and associated hardware for a 500 kV power line project from Proyectos De Infraestructura Del Peru (PDI). In addition, in December 2015, Chilean E-CL, controlled by French utility GDF Suez, signed an agreement with Spain’s power transmission network operator Red Eléctrica de España (REE) to partner in the development of the Mejillones–Cardones Transmission Line Project. Various funding deals were also signed in 2015 to strengthen the power transmission network of the region. During the year, France’s Agence Française de Développement (AFD) offered financing of EUR100 million to Brazilian state-owned power utility Companhia Energetica de Minas Gerais (Cemig) to reinforce and improve the transmission infrastructure in Brazil; Corporación Andina de

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
