Jul 8, 2014 - Brazilian renewable energy developer Bioenergy has postponed the launch of six wind farms with a combined capacity of 172.8 MW by one year to the end of 2016.
The wind farms, of 28.8 MW each, will be built in the northeastern Maranhao state as part of the Ventos do Norte complex.
The postponement was approved by power sector regulator Aneel with resolutions published in the state gazette today. The company should start construction by April 21, 2016.
The projects were among the winners at an energy auction in 2012.
Bioenergy wants to compete with wind and solar power projects of a total 2,311 MW at Brazil's A-5 energy auction, scheduled for September 12, 2014.
