• The Company has been awarded energy supply contracts with a wind project located in north-eastern Brazil;
• The new project will add further 114 MW to the 490 MW of wind capacity Enel Green Power already obtained in previous Brazilian public auctions since 2010;
• Construction of the new project requires an overall investment of approximately 250 million US dollars.

The wind farm,“Morro do Chapéu”, will be constructed in Bahia State, in north-eastern Brazil, where the company already manages approximately 400 MW of wind projects in operation or under construction and over 254 MW of photovoltaic projects awarded within the last “Leilão de Reserva” public tender.

“Morro do Chapéu”, with a total installed capacity of 114 MW and an average load factor of more than 50%, equivalent to approximately 4,500 hours of energy production per year, will be able to generate over 500 GWh per year, avoiding the annual emission of over 150,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.

"We are very pleased with this brilliant result that follows after less than a month the award of other 344 MW of wind and photovoltaic capacity obtained in the previous Brazilian public tender - stated Francesco Venturini, CEO of Enel Green Power. "Specifically, this new project will add further 114 MW to 490 MW of wind capacity that Enel Green Power has already won in Brazil in previous public tenders since 2010, another step forward in our growth strategy in Latin America."

The Morro do Chapéu project will require a total investment of around 250 million US dollars to build. With its power production, the plant will help meet Brazil’s increasing energy demand, which is estimated to grow at an average annual rate of 4% by 2020.

Brazil is among the world leaders in renewable energy generation thanks to its more than 98,000 MW of installed renewable capacity, corresponding to around 85% of the country’s total installed capacity.
