Lagoa Dos Ventos Wind Project

It represents one of the largest energy infrastructures in Brazil and will be the sustainable engine for the entire economic and production sector of Latin America.

About the plant

Wind is blowing hard in Brazil

Comprised of 230 wind turbines, Lagoa dos Ventos wind facility located in Brazil’s northeastern state of Piauí is a record-braking project. It is the largest wind plant currently under construction in South America and Enel Green Power’s largest wind farm worldwide. Once fully up and running, the 716 MW facility will be able to generate over 3.3 TWh per year while avoiding the emission of over 1.6 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.

Timeline

Milestones

Given the large scale of the project, EGPB designed an innovative plant layout based on a high-resolution wind resource assessment to optimise the project’s energy output. In addition, EGPB is using a variety of innovative tools and methods to build Lagoa dos Ventos, such as proximity sensors on machinery to boost site safety, drones for topographic survey, smart tracking of wind turbine components, as well as advanced digital platforms and software solutions to monitor and remotely support site activities and plant commissioning. These processes and tools enable swifter, more accurate and reliable data collection, improving the quality of construction and facilitating communication between on-site and off-site teams.
