Brazil revokes license of 28.5MW sugarcane biomass plant project
Brazil's power regulator Aneel has revoked the winning status of a 28.5MW biomass project from the energy auction held on 21 August, 2015.
The project was proposed by Brazilian Clealco Acucar e Alcool, which planned to build a plant using sugarcane bagasse as energy source.
The decision was made by Aneel's Special Tender Committee (CEL), the body responsible for the vetting process of auction winners, after Clealco's delay in submitting the necessary documents.
Aneel also started an administrative process to investigate more irregularities.
The August 2015 tender awarded 669.5MW of clean energy contracts to wind, biomass, natural gas, and hydropower projects.
