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.
