Voltalia has kicked off production at four solar projects in Brazil.
The French renewable power company started production at its Solar Serra do Mel (SSM) facility.
According to the company, these projects are part of the Serra Branca cluster in the north-eastern state of Rio Grande do Norte. The projects, called SSM3-6, have a total capacity of 260MW.
Though the projects’ operating capacity is 17MW currently, the remaining capacity will be commissioned later, it explained.
“We are very pleased to announce the commencement of the commissioning of SSM3-6. “This is the result of several years of development and construction work that is bearing its first fruits,” Sébastien Clerc, Voltalia CEO, was quoted in a statement.
Voltalia informed that it will operate six producing solar projects in the Serra Branca cluster. It has been producing power through various solar and wind projects.
For Serra Branca, the company has aimed to achieve a total capacity of 2.4GW of renewable power.
Voltalia’s has been working along the lines of the Brazilian government. Brazil has set a goal of adding over 10GW of new renewables capacity by the end of this year.
