Sepetiba Inepar power station
|This article is part of the Global Energy Monitor coverage of Brazil and coal|
Sepetiba Inepar power station is a proposed 1250-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Sepetiba, Itaguaí, Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil.
The map below shows Sepetiba, the approximate location where the plant would be built.
The plant was originally conceived as a joint venture between Brazil's Inepar Energia and Italy's Enel Power in 2000, winning approval from the Brazilian regulatory agency ANEEL in 2001. In 2002, the state of Rio de Janeiro declined to issue a permit due to the plant's high proposed levels of nitrogen oxide emissions, and in 2007 the plant's planned inclusion in a national energy auction was scuttled due to similar environmental concerns, effectively shelving the project.
