Latin American market round up: Electrobras plans $13.2 billion investment

Brazil’s federal power holding group, Electrobras, has approved its 2009-12 strategic plan for R$30.2 billion ($13.2 billion) of investments.

About R$26 billion will be invested in generation and transmission and distribution projects. In 2009, R$8.7 billion will be invested, followed by R$9 billion in 2010. This 2009 investment is a 170% increase on the 2008 capex.

Despite Electrobras’s bold announcement, 50% of the plan is already funded.
