Formed by the Calango, I, II, III, IV, V and VI and Santana I and II parks, the Complex Calangos occupies an area that includes the municipalities of Bodó, Lagoa Nova and Santana dos Matos, in Rio Grande do Norte (RN).
The project has an installed capacity of 234MW, divided into 117 GAMESA wind turbines of 2MW (all of the Calango and Santana I parks have 15 wind turbines, and Santana II has 12 wind turbines). These numbers make the Calangos Complex the largest wind farm of Neoenergia in Brazil, being among the largest developments in the sector in the country.
Its construction began in 2014. The commercial operation of the parks took place in two stages. The first one, in January 2016, started the production of electricity from the Calango I to V parks. On the second, in January 2017, the Calango VI and Santana I and II parks started operations.
Due to its installed capacity of 234 MW, the Calangos Complex is an important agent in the control and stability of the national interconnected system (SIN) in the northeastern micro region of the country. In addition, it also contributes to the social development of the Serra de Santana region, with the generation of direct and indirect jobs and the payment of royalties to the owners of the land leased for the installation of the project.
