Novatrans began operating in June 2003, and currently integrates the electric power transmission system that interconnects the North and Southeast regions, with 6 substations (all accessed) and approximately 1,278 km of 500kV transmission lines crossing through the States of Maranhão, Tocantins, and Goiás. It is the concession with the longest extension of TAESA’s transmission lines, having synergy with TSN, ATE II, and ATE III. The concession term ends on December 20, 2030.
The contractual purpose of this concession aims to supply of electric energy the North and Southeast regions, through the transmission lines that will connect the substation Imperatriz to the substation Samambaia, crossing the substations of Colinas, Miracema, Gurupi, and Serra da Mesa.
This concession also stands out by having in its facilities 8 fixed-series capacitor banks and 10 shunt inductive compensation. On October 21, 2019, the reinforcement of the concession related to the authoritative resolution REA 6306/17 and, respectively, on October 28 and November 18, 2019, the reinforcement of the concession related to the authoritative resolution REA 6369/17 was concluded, fulfilling the deadline required by ANEEL and adding RAP of R$ 38.1 million for the 2019-2020 cycle, starting from the energization date of each installation (pro-rata). The project consists of the rehabilitation of four (4) 500kV Series Capacitor Banks on the Miracema-Gurupi C2 and Serra da Mesa-Gurupi C2 transmission lines (LT), with the objective of allowing an increase in the energy transfer capacity between the North, Northeast and Southeast regions through the North-South Interconnection, previously limited by the nominal current of the series capacitor banks.
It is TAESA’s wholly owned concession (making up the Holding Company) and its fiscal regimen is Lucro Real (Real Profit). It has a fiscal benefit SUDAM in 73% of its area. The related PIS and COFINS are 0.65% and 3.0% (RAP is already grossed up of PIS/ COFINS).
