The wind farm, which features 10 3MW turbines, is the second phase of the Areia Branca project.

The Areia Branca project is due to be completed with the commissioning of the 10 3MW turbines of the Carcara 1 wind farm by the end of February 2015.

The move will bring Voltalia’s total wind production capacity to 90MW in Brazil, pending the completion of the ongoing 108MW SMG and 93MW Vamcruz projects.

Voltalia’s total production capacity stood at 133.1MW at end of December 2014.

Voltalia chief executive officer Sébastien Clerc said: "The launch of second wind farm in Areia Branca (Brazil) marks the end of a year teeming with strategic, operational and financial achievements.

Renewable energy-based electricity producer Voltalia develops and operates multi-energy projects in several sectors that include wind, solar, hydropower and biomass.

Voltalia started raising up to €30m through a private placement to fund further development.

The company expects to generate revenue of about €27.6m for the year ended 31 December 2014, a 48% increase from 2013.
