September 6 (Renewables Now) – Brazilian energy company Engie Brasil Energia SA (BMVF:EGIE3) announced that its 361.2-MW Campo Largo II wind farm complex in Bahia state reached full commercial operation date (COD).
Power sector regulator Aneel approved last week the start of operations of the last three of the 11 wind farms that make up the complex, Engie Brasil said.
Campo Largo II uses the V150-4.2-MW wind turbines made by Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS), according to the company’s website.
The Campo Largo II wind farms are located in the municipality of Umburanas, the state of Bahia. Engie already operates two other wind installations, Campo Largo and Umburanas, totalling 686.7 MW in the same region.
“The existing synergies in the region, among them the use of the same substation, transmission line, worksite infrastructure and internal access roads, have allowed this project to be delivered ahead of schedule,” said Eduardo Sattamini, Chief Executive and Investor Relations Officer of ENGIE Brasil Energia.
With Campo Largo II fully operational, Engie Brasil now has 1,262.6 MW of installed wind capacity in the country.
