    Neoenergia Oitis, the Brazilian wind mega-complex with 100 wind turbines, enters testing phase

    June 17, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Neoenergia announced on Tuesday (6/14) the start of operational tests of the first seven wind turbines of Neoenergia Oitis, a wind power complex between the states of Piauí and Bahia. According to the developer, the delivery of this phase was made one month ahead of schedule. The project (photo) will be the company's largest in this field in the country, with an installed capacity of 566.5 MW, enough to supply a city of 2.7 million inhabitants. Full operation is scheduled for the second half of this year. The wind farm complex has 103 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 5.5 MW, and will consist of 12 wind farms. The energy generated in the Neoenergia Oitis wind farms will be 96% destined to the Free Contracting Environment (ALC), and 4% will be sold in the regulated energy market. Neoenergia is currently the second largest energy distribution company in Brazil.

      Laura Porto, Neoenergia's Director of Renewables: "The construction of the wind complex is aligned with Neoenergia's positioning strategy in the liberalization of the Brazilian energy market. We believe that clean energies are the way to decarbonize the economy".

      Neoenergia declares as of today 1,700 MW of capacity, in operation and under construction, between wind farms and solar photovoltaic farms, power that, added to the hydro in operation, raises the Brazilian company's renewable generation park above 4,700 MW (data from the end of 2021). In addition to the Neoenergia Oitis wind complex, the company concluded Neoenergia Chafariz, and advanced this year in the construction of Neoenergia Luzia, a solar complex located in the municipality of Santa Luzia, in Paraíba. The three projects - the company reports - will lead the company to reach more than 90% of its installed capacity in clean energy.
