Angra III nuclear power plant in Brazil is delayed

Completion of the 1.35 GW Angra III nuclear power plant in Brazil has been postponed until July 2016, according to BNamericas. The plant was originally scheduled for completion in December 2015, but a stall in the bid round process is behind the delay, the article said.

Plant operator Eletronuclear, a unit of Eletrobras (NYSE: EBR), said in the article that work had been delayed after a court appeal by the Construcap e Orteng consortium, which was excluded from the tender process for the third phase of construction. The third phase includes two contracts for $1 billion for the installation of electromechanical equipment.

Eletronuclear also operates the 657 MW Angra I and 1.35 GW Angra II plants.
