Project Details

  • Sponsor: Gastrading Comercializadora de Energias S.A.[1]
  • Parent company: Grupo Leros[2]
  • Location: Peruíbe, São Paulo, Brazil
  • Coordinates: -24.2856, -47.0000 (approximate)[1]
  • Gross generating capacity (cancelled): 1768 MW
    • Unit 1: Gas-fired[1] unknown technology, 1768 MW[1] (start-up year not available)


The project was originally proposed in 2015[3] but did not move forward due to controversy and opposition.[4] Gastrading completed the RIMA (Relatório de Impacto Ambiental) for the project despite these concerns.[5] The facility was planned to work with a 345 kV transmission line to connect to the Baixada Santista/CTEEP Substation and the larger SIN.[5] The installation of a gas pipeline from the facility was also discussed by Gastrading.[5]

The project was rejected by São Paulo's state environmental authority in December 2017[6] and encountered active opposition from the municipal council of Peruíbe, which amended local ordinances to prevent the plant's construction.[7] As of November 2021 there has been no further news about the project, and it is presumed to be cancelled.
