Enel Green Power wins more wind capacity in Brazil

Enel Green Power has been awarded energy supply contracts for a wind project located in north-eastern Brazil. The new project will add further 114MW to the 490MW of wind capacity Enel Green Power already obtained in previous Brazilian public auctions since 2010. Construction of the new project requires an overall investment of approximately USD 250M.

The Morro do Chapéu wind farm will be constructed in Bahia State, in north-eastern Brazil, where the company already manages approximately 400MW of wind projects in operation or under construction and over 254MW of photovoltaic projects awarded within the last Leilão de Reserva public tender.

Morro do Chapéu, with a total installed capacity of 114MW and an average load factor of more than 50%, equivalent to approximately 4,500 hours of energy production per year, will be able to generate over 500GWh per year, avoiding the annual emission of over 150,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.

“We are very pleased with this brilliant result that follows after less than a month the award of other 344MW of wind and photovoltaic capacity obtained in the previous Brazilian public tenderâ€? – stated Francesco Venturini, CEO of Enel Green Power.
