Statkraft has inaugurated the 519 MW Ventos de Santa Eugênia Wind Complex in Bahia, Brazil. It is among the first hybrid projects in Brazil once the planned solar farm of 163 MW is added as well.
Located in Uibaí and Ibipeba, in the Bahia region, the wind complex spans an area of 489 hectares. The complex consists of 14 wind farms with 91 wind turbines, each with a generation capacity of 5.7 MW. Renewable energy production should reach 2,300 GWh per year. Construction of the Ventos de Santa Eugênia hybrid solar farm will start later this year. Using battery technology, the energy complex will have a combined capacity of 682 MW. Operations are planned for 2025.
