At the last federal competitive tender held by the Brazilian regulator on August 31th, EDF Energies Nouvelles’s local subsidiary, EDF Renewables, has been awarded two wind projects located in Bahia State, totalizing 276 MW. EDF Renewables thus won nearly a quarter of the 1200 MW capacity awarded at the auction.

Those two projects benefit from a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

Each of them is an extension of existing wind projects. The first one is a 147 MW addition to a 114 MW project at 350 km north-west from Salvador awarded in the previous tender in April (Folha Larga) and the second project is a 129 MW addition to a 183 MW wind farm (Ventos da Bahia), which is due to be commissioned within the following weeks.

Established for three years into Brazil, EDF Renewables already ranks among the country’s leaders in the sector, with its portfolio of close to 1,000MW  in wind and solar energy projects under construction and in operation.

These projects, that are scheduled for commissioning in 2024, contribute to the EDF Group’s CAP 2030 strategy which aims at doubling its renewable energy capacity by 2030, in France and worldwide.
