Enel Green Power cleared to launch 14 MW at wind plant in Brazil
Oct 10, 2014 - Brazil's electricity regulator Aneel has allowed Enel Green Power Emiliana Eolica to start commercial operation of six wind turbines of combined 14.1 MW, part of the Emiliana wind farm in Igapora, Bahia state, according to a decree in the state gazette yesterday.
The project comprises 12 turbines of 2.35 MW each. The developer, owned by Italian company Enel Green Power (BIT:EGPW), built the facility simultaneously with the nearby 28.2-MW Joana wind farm.
Aneel gave permits for tests at the two plants in August, while recently it authorised the full-scale operation of Joana.
In Brazil, Enel Green Power has over 170 MW of installed wind capacity and 90 MW of small hydroelectric plants.
