Brazilian power utility Engie Brasil Energia SA (BVMF:EGIE3) has received the go-head from power sector regulator Aneel to put online the final piece of a 326.7-MW wind power complex.
Named Campo Largo I, the complex covers an area of 44,000 hectares (108,726 acres) in the state of Bahia, in the municipalities of Umburanas and Sento Se. Comprising 121 wind turbines, the complex consists of 11 wind farms in total, the local unit of French energy group Engie (EPA:ENGI) announced last week.
The first wind park of the complex to start operation was the 29.7-MW Central Eolica Campo Largo VII facility. It went online in July.
Engie is also building the 360-MW Umburanas complex in Bahia, the first wind turbines of which are to begin operations in early 2019.
