The resources allowed the progress in the construction of strategic projects for the company. The highlight was the early completion of the Neoenergia Chafariz Wind Farm, today the largest company in operation in the country.
Neoenergia informs that this Sunday (30) an incident has occurred in one of the wind turbines of Arizona Wind Park, in Rio Grande do Norte (RN). All safety measures have been implemented. The company is investigating the causes.
This energy is equivalent to enough to supply 1 million people a year. Today, this is the company's largest wind farm in operation in the country and has almost doubled the company's portfolio in this clean source.
Carbon credits were acquired in the process of voluntary cancellation of emissions, in a clear advance of the sustainability actions of the business groups involved in the initiative.
The company has just started the assembly of the first wind turbines that will produce clean energy in the 12 parks of the project, which will be the largest of the company in the country, with an installed capacity of 566.5 MW.
Donations were made in initiatives that benefited people in vulnerable situations in 12 states of the country.
Equivalent to a 25-story building, equipment came from the city of Qinhuangdao, in China, to the port of Suape, in Pernambuco, from where they continued their journey in trucks to Oitis, located in Piauí and Bahia.
In the vicinity of the Itapebi hydroelectric power plant (BA), the company benefits the population of the municipality of Salto da Divisa, with works for the implementation of a basic sanitation network and the realization of a housing adequacy program.
Under the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), J&F Group access 300 MWavg of renewable energy stemming from two new wind complexes under construction in Northeast, through trading in free market for the next 10 years, as from 2023.
The period also saw an increase in investments, which reached R$1.2 billion for renewables, representing a 319% growth in the segment's Capex.
Project implemented in partnership with BNDES and conducted by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), aims to foster local capacities to accelerate compliance with the SDGs.
Neoenergia has begun mobilization to move forward on another stage of one of its main transmission projects, Lagoa dos Patos, which will assist in the outflow of wind energy generation in Rio Grande do Sul and strengthen the electric system.
Because it does not suffer direct interference from unknown variables and depends solely on climatic conditions, which can be predicted based on historical averages, this is a low-risk application.
The project, which is located between Piauí and Bahia, had its construction started in the fourth quarter of 2020, ahead of schedule, and continues at a fast pace, generating jobs in the region.
Starts the operation of four photovoltaic minigeneration systems in the interior of Pernambuco, with an installed capacity of 851 kWp. The new operations drive the group's performance in the Energy Solutions segment offered to end customers.
Undertaking located in the Sertão of Paraíba (Hinterlands of Paraíba) has the first 10 wind turbines in operation, delivered 17 months before the start of the contract in the Regulated Market.
By contracting the bonds, the company's clients encourage the generation of renewable energy, contributing to decarbonization and generating value in the market.
In order to build joint ideas, Neoenergia,the Brazilian Institute of Development and Sustainability (IABS) and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) held an online debate focused on the potential of photovoltaic generation.
This May 29, when the World Energy Day is celebrated, the company reinforces this positioning. By 2022, the wind complexes of Chafariz (PB) and Oitis (PI and BA) will be completed, with their installed capacity tripled, reaching 1.6 GW.
With 149.3 MWp of installed capacity aimed at the free market, the new plants mark the company's debut in photovoltaic generation for sale on the market and are located in the municipality of Santa Luzia, in the Hinterlands of Paraíba.
The investment includes the installation of a radar positioned at the plant's spillway - where the flow of the surplus water takes place. The equipment monitors everything within a radius of 1 km.
Growth compared to the same period of the previous year reinforces continuity of the company's current strategy and was mainly due to the good performance in the seasonality of hydroelectric plants and higher winds in the company's wind farms.
Construction and operation of wind farms represent opportunities for sustainable growth and increased income in regions that receive projects.
The plant is the company's newest hydraulic generation project and with the self-restoring feature, it is able to start the process of normalizing the National Interconnected System (SIN) in case of occurrences.
The technology allows accessing high resolution images to make the mapping and monitoring of the APPs of Baixo Iguaçu, Corumbá III and Teles Pires plants faster and more objective.
The Company owns 17 projects in operation in the Northeast region, which are remotely managed from the Renewable Operations Center (CORE) in Rio de Janeiro, more than 2,000 kilometers away from most of the farms.
With a one-year manufacturing period, the device was delivered in September 2019. Several challenges were faced until the equipment arrival, which traveled more than 3,600 km by road.
Components of the wind turbines that will form the Chafariz Wind Complex travel more than a thousand kilometers of highways in a special road scheme.
There were 128 recovered springs and nine areas of path of the revitalized rivers, with an investment of R$ 1.6 million. Among the benefits is the significant improvement in supply in neighboring communities.
Turbines are of one of the most cutting edge models in the global market and have a unit capacity of 3.465MW, adding up to a power output of 471.2 MW in 15 farms
