Delfina Story

Based on the information published by the Brazilian Power Trade Chamber CCEE for May 2018 the project Delfina developed by SOWITEC is among the ten best wind project sites in Brazil.

The highlight of the month is the project Delfina III with 28 MW installed capacity and a capacity factor of 77.2%.

Four other subparks belonging to the Delfina cluster are also among the top ten projects. Additionally remarkable is the constancy of the high capacity factor on hourly basis for May 2018. The wind complex located in the municipality of Campo Formoso, Bahia state consists of seven subparks totaling 180 MW and is operated with Vestas turbines. The cluster owned by Enel Green Power represents a mix of power supply agreements, where 90 MW were commercialized through the Reserve Energy Auction (LER 2014) and 90 MW through private PPAs on the free market.
