The services will generate further socio-cultural development and modernization of electrical infrastructure in the region
The Ceará Infrastructure Secretariat, in partnership with the energy concessionaire Enel Ceará, carries out wire removal and pole replacement services in the Historic Center of Sobral. The work being carried out is part of the last stage of the first phase of the work to internalize the overhead wiring and innovate the site. In this phase, 150 poles will be replaced and more than eight thousand meters of wires will be removed. The region is considered one of the city’s main postcards, especially for preserving the history and cultural scene of Sobral.
“This work, a pioneer in a historic site in the State, is a reference for other centers and will bring even more development to the municipality. It will guarantee faster reconnection in the event of a power outage. Also, reduce the risk of lack of input due to accident, modernize the urban region of the city and maintain the historic architecture, valuing public space”, highlights the Secretary of Infrastructure, Antonio Nei de Sousa.
The network installation has integrated intelligence with new automation technologies, which aims to improve local energy supply and increase the municipality’s energy capacity.
The work, when completed, will include the replacement of more than 152 thousand meters of wiring from the existing overhead electrical network in the Historic Center with a new underground, medium and low voltage network, offering modern and inspiring infrastructure.
With resources in the order of almost R$14 million from the Annual Special Investment Program (PIE), managed by Seinfra, the work is part of the Internalization Project for electrical, telecommunications and public lighting installations in the aforementioned section. The initiative also has resources from the Government of Ceará, the National Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute (IPHAN) and the Sobral City Hall.
