Rio Grande do Norte to earn wind farm

Called the Rio dos Ventos, the wind farm will be installed in Rio Grande do Norte, with investment valued at about R $2.4 billion. The confirmation was made by the company Casa dos Ventos, investor of the project. After completing the project, the estimate is that the complex produces enough energy to illuminate around 1 million residences.

The forecast is that the park starts operating from the 2nd semester of 2021, with installed power of 445 MW, equipped with 106 wind turbines from the Danish Vestas. The project also estimates that there is an expansion of energy capacity in the future, which can reach 950 MW.

According to the director of projects and new business of the House of Winds, Lucas Araripe, about 5% of the production was sold at auction by the federal government last year, while the remainder will be offered to consumers in the "Electricity free market", In which large companies can directly negotiate their supply.

The investor will now seek funding from BNDES (National Bank for Economic and Social development) and BNB (Banco do Nordeste) for the project, which has an operation planned for the second semester of 2021. There are also no discarded debentures (applications from a loan to a company) to raise resources. The wind complex of Rio do Vento is divided into several mills, and eventually the interested parties may close contracts that include a future purchase option of one or more units of the park.
