Paris-based independent power producer (IPP) Total Eren SA is planning to build a 67.3-MW wind park in Brazil's Rio Grande do Norte state, the local government announced on Friday.
The European company will invest BRL 350 million (USD 84m/EUR 76.1m) in this project, to be located in the municipality of Areia Branca.
Total Eren is also working on two other wind schemes in Caicara do Norte town, with a combined capacity of 70 MW and BRL 400 million in investments.
According to the new business manager, Joao Creste, the construction of this wind portfolio should happen at the same time as of the other two, with completion scheduled for the end of next year.
Rio Grande do Norte's Development Secretary, Jaime Calado, added that Total Eren is continuing to look for new business opportunities in the state.
Currently, Rio Grande do Norte is the largest wind producer in Brazil with over 150 operating farms generating 4 GW, the government noted.
