March 16 (Renewables Now) - Brazilian state-run oil and gas giant Petrobras (BVMF:PETR4) said on Friday it is initiating the joint process of divesting its stakes in the holding companies for two wind farms totalling 52 MW.

The oil giant owns a 49% stake in Eolica Mangue Seco 3 and 4, while the remaining 51% of the shares are held by Wobben Windpower Industria e Comercio Ltda. According to the company's teaser, the sale will be carried out together with Wobben through a competitive process aiming for the total divestment of the wind farms.

Located in Guamare municipality, Rio Grande do Norte state, the two 26-MW plants are part of a 104-MW wind power complex comprised of four parks in total. On January 31, 2020, Petrobras commenced the sale of the other two wind farms, Mangue Seco 1 and Mangue Seco 2.
