Voltalia, an international player in renewable energies, announces the full commissioning of the VSM2 wind plant (128 megawatts) and the production by VSM3’s of its first turbines (VSM3 will total 152 megawatts). Both wind plants are located in Voltalia’s Brazilian wind-and-solar complex of Serra Branca, the world’s biggest (2.4 gigawatts).

“The full commissioning of VSM2 and the start of operations of VSM3’s first turbines are new successful steps in the development of our Serra Branca cluster. The cluster has now 897 megawatts in operation including 624 owned by Voltalia and 273 sold to third parties. This power generated today at Serra Branca is equivalent to the consumption of more than 4.9 million people, and this number will increase soon when projects in construction and ready-to-build will be completed” says Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia.

VSM2 (128 megawatts) was progressively commissioned in 2020 and the last turbines have started producing electricity in April 2021. The power produced by the wind plant is sold at fixed prices to various Brazilian utilities through 10- to 20-year contracts.

VSM3 (152 megawatts) benefited from strong synergies with VSM1 and VSM2 during the construction phase. The wind farm has now 7 turbines in operation (24 megawatts) and will include a total of 44 turbines. It is expected to reach full power in June 2021. The new Collector Substation Mel 2, where the project will connect is already operational since March 2021. The power produced by the wind plant will be sold at fixed prices through short term contracts until June 30th 2021 ant through a 20-year power sale contract with a Brazilian utility, starting July 1st 2021.
