Public procurement localisation

The Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) will hold the first wind energy auction on November 25th, 2009, as part of the ongoing Program of Incentives for Alternative Electricity Sources (PROINFA), a government program that aims to promote the use of renewable technologies in the production of electricity.

The Ministry set out the requisites for new electricity generation projects participating in the auction in Administrative Act (Portaria) 211, published on May 28th, 2009. This act banned the use of imported wind turbines with nominal power up to 2,000kW by bidders participating in the auction.

This restriction was modified by MME Administrative Act 242 of June 25th, 2009, which stated that the use of imported turbines with nominal power under 1,500 kW were not allowed by bidders in the auction.
