Mitsubishi Power will supply four M501JAC enhanced air-cooled gas turbines, while CONSAG will be responsible for supplying the balance of plant, utilities, civil works, assembly, and commissioning of the plant as well as implementation of transmission lines and substations.

The four M501JAC gas turbines will operate in simple cycle mode at UTE Portocem. It will be one of the largest power plants in Latin America with an installed capacity of 1.6 GW. It will be constructed in the Pecém Industrial and Port Complex, located in the metropolitan region of Fortaleza.

A 6 km transmission line will connect the plant to the National Interconnected System (SIN), through the Pecém 2 substation. A Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) will be chartered by Portocem and permanently moored within the basin of the Port of Pecém.
