Canudos 1 Wind Farm: 99.4 MW for Voltalia in Brazil

Canudos 1 Wind Farm: 99.4 MW for Voltalia in Brazil

This 99.4 MW Canudos 1 wind farm will enable the French company Voltalia to strengthen its presence in Brazil. It also marks the beginning of the construction of its new complex named Canudos. The latter should eventually develop 1 GW in the state of Bahia. And considering the diversity of its natural environments, Brazil is the ideal country to develop such wind projects.

99.4 MW wind farm to be commissioned in 2022

This new wind farm announced by Voltalia should produce 99.4 MW against the 90 MW initially planned. It will be located in the state of Bahia in Brazil and will be operational in the first half of 2022.

In this context, the French giant has also signed an electricity sales contract with the Brazilian national electricity company, Cemig. The collaboration is planned for 20 years.

Voltalia already well established in Brazil

Voltalia is already behind the world’s largest wind-solar cluster with a capacity of 2.4 GW located in Serra Blanca in the state of Rio Grande do Norte. The company has also created other networks such as those of Sao Miguel do Gostoso (SMG) and Oiapoque.

With this new wind farm, Voltalia continues to be a key player in the development of renewable energy in Brazil. Through its presence, it is driving the energy transition of these resource-rich territories. This is a definite help for Brazil to solve its electricity supply problems. Not all of its population has access to it, especially in the remote areas of the Amazon.
