February 8 (Renewables Now) - Brazilian utility CEEE Geracao e Transmissao has opened a public call to select companies or consortia interested in acquiring an equity interest in a 52.5-MW wind power complex.
Interested parties should send their proposals by February 22, the Rio Grande do Sul state government announced on Wednesday.
Comprised of 25 wind turbines spread over the 8.4-MW Povo Novo, 21-MW Vera Cruz and 23.1-MW Curupira parks, the Povo Novo Wind Complex, as it is named, was awarded in an energy auction back in November 2013. Construction is currently suspended while the complex has 34.6% of the work done.
CEEE has 1,252.22 MW of installed capacity between its own plants and shares in other projects, including hydropower and wind farms as well as transmission and distribution facilities. Of its total portfolio, 909 MW are from its own projects located in the North and Northeast regions of Rio Grande do Sul state.
