Sowitec has plans to develop the 501 MW Parque Eolico Palmas dos Ventos wind power complex in the Brazilian state of Sergipe.
Located between the cities of Tobias Barreto, Simao Dias and Riachao do Dantas, the new wind farm will be connected to the Itabaianinha transmission line and will be built in three phases.
The company plans to secure power purchase agreements (PPAs) for the project during the energy auctions to be held by the end of 2016.
The total project investment is estimated at BRL2 billion (US$500.6 million).
Sergipe is located on the northeastern Atlantic coast of the country. It borders on two other states, Bahia, to the south and west and Alagoas, to the north, and to the east is the Atlantic Ocean. Aracaju is the capital and the largest city in the state.
