Voltalia develops a solar complex in Brazil

Voltalia-centrale solaire

After having already developed two large complexes in Brazil, namely Serra Branca and Canudos, the Voltalia Group is developing the Arinos project. Arinos is a new solar complex with a potential of 1.5 GW, this time located in the southeast of Brazil.

The positive impact of the project on the Brazilian environment

Already, the fact of developing large complexes allows the mutualization of infrastructures, connection networks and maintenance. As with each of the complexes developed in Brazil, Voltalia always ensures that the project has a positive impact on the environment and on the surrounding communities.

With the Arinos complex, Voltalia ensures the development for its own account but also for third parties. In this respect, the company has signed strategic partnerships, notably with CTG Brazil, a reference in the Brazilian market.

Similarly, Voltalia will be able to sell a significant portion of the solar sites in the complex upon approval. Provided, of course, that the development phase of each site is completed.

In addition, the teams follow and intervene in each stage of the development of the projects. From assessing the potential and securing the best sites, to launching construction. A construction that can be realized only after obtaining the necessary permits and authorizations. The objective is to select the best electricity production sites for development.

Voltalia’s activity in Brazil

Voltalia places the development of renewable projects at the heart of its DNA. As a result, it will continue to expand in Brazil with its 5.1 GW pipeline of future projects under development.

Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia, said:

“With the launch of the Arinos complex, Voltalia confirms its ability to carry out very large-scale projects in Brazil as an energy producer and as a service provider. For almost a decade, we have been successfully developing these large-scale wind and solar complexes to produce renewable energy that is accessible to as many people as possible, an objective at the heart of our mission.”

In fact, Voltalia has a large presence in Brazil with wind, solar, hydroelectric and hybrid projects at multiple sites. These include the SMG wind farm in the state of Rio Grande do Norte with 108 MW and the Canudos 1 wind farm in the state of Bahia.

HySynergy: Everfuel and Crossbridge launch phase 2

Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy announced that they have signed a long-term agreement. It determines the terms of the hydrogen supply for one stage of the HySynergy project, currently under development. This is a major milestone for the smelter, which is expected to reach a capacity of 300 MW. Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy launch the second phase of HySynergy Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy have approved commercial terms for the first stage of the HySynergy smelter development. Three stages make up phase two of the development, corresponding to three sections of 100 MW capacity. Section A is expected to produce up to 40 tons of renewable hydrogen per day. The Crossbridge Energy refinery will use this hydrogen to produce more sustainable fuel. It is also intended for the mobility and industrial sectors as a zero-emission fuel. Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, welcomes the agreement with Crossbridge Energy: "The long-term agreement on commercial terms with Crossbridge Energy is an important element for the HySynergy Phase II development project. We share a strong partnership and look forward to continuing our collaboration on the construction of a large-scale PtX facility that will be a game changer for the energy transition in Denmark. Before that, of...

Tata Power Solar inaugurates a Floating Solar project

Tata Power Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has just accomplished a remarkable feat in India. In fact, it has just commissioned the largest floating solar power project in the country. Despite the technical difficulties, the company was able to deliver the project on time, proving its commitment to the energy transition. Tata Power Solar achieves a technical feat Tata Power Solar inaugurates India's largest floating solar power project. The latter is located on a body of water of about 141 hectares in the backwaters of Kayamkulam, in Kerala. In addition, this project has an installed capacity of 101.6MWp. This project is the first of the floating solar photovoltaic power plants (FSPV) with a power purchase agreement. In addition, it has obtained a commercial operation date (CoD) certification designating it as complete and operational. Tata Power Solar has built a platform on the water on which the entire solar power plant floats. 134 cast pile foundations, drilled to a depth of 20 meters, anchor the entire project to the waterbed. This supports the central monitoring and control stations and the 33/220 kilovolt distribution substation. The entire array includes floats and solar panel modules. Tata Power Solar had to...


CIP invests in Onshore Wind in Spain

In a press release, CIP announces its commitment to onshore wind energy. With an investment of 70 million euros, the group is pursuing its commitments made at the COP 26. In effect, CIP is providing a CI GCF I credit to Capital Energy, a major Spanish renewable energy developer. CIP wants to develop onshore wind power in Spain First of all, Capital Energy wants to develop onshore wind power in Spain. With this in mind, a financing agreement was signed between the two entities. The CIP loan will provide a total of 70 million euros. This will facilitate the development and construction of a 1 GW portfolio of onshore wind assets in Spain. Thus, onshore wind power will be deployed throughout Spain with construction and operation between 2023 and 2025. Second, CIP emphasizes the historic nature of the credit to Capital Energy. This transaction is the first investment of the new CI GCF I fund. In addition, the financing will allow Capital Energy to accelerate the construction and deployment of its onshore wind assets. CIP will support its partner in its strategic plan to become an independent power producer. Finally, Nicholas Blach-Petersen, CIP partner and co-manager of CI GCF I,...
