Shell sets up new structure for energy in Brazil

Last Monday (5), Shell announced a new business structure for the commercialization and generation of electricity in Brazil. The company's project aims to develop an integrated energy model in the country. According to the multinational oil company, the strategy in Marketing and New Energies will include the generation and storage of clean energy and natural gas, commercialization and optimization, and sales to final consumers of integrated energy solutions with the Shell brand.

Today, Shell develops, in an integrated model, the Marlim Azul thermoelectric plant, in Macaé (RJ), in a joint venture between Shell Brasil (29.9%), Pátria Investimentos (50.1%) and the Mitsubishi Power System (20%). Under construction, the plant will have an installed capacity of 565.5 megawatts (MW) and will be the first to use pre-salt natural gas. In the renewable energy sector, Shell Brasil has already requested the granting for the installation of photovoltaic solar plants in Minas Gerais, totaling 1.1 gigawatts (GW), and awaits resolution of the request.
