The company added that Brandt Meio Ambiente will prepare the installation environmental permits and Geoid Laser Mapping will conduct the topographic aerial laser survey of the powerline route and detailed positioning of pylon locations.

Jeremy Martin, CEO of Horizonte, said: “We announced earlier this year that we had secured the water abstraction permit for Araguaia's full-scale ferronickel operation and now we're advancing the energy infrastructure with the awards of contracts to experienced Brazilian powerline consultants.”

He added: “The 230kV transmission line is a significant part of the Araguaia project, so it's an exciting time for the company to see this milestone progress, bringing us closer to the build-phase of the Araguaia project.”
