Construction and power generation:

Electricity will be generated at the Cajuína Wind Farm, which will be installed in the state of Rio Grande do Norte. Construction of the park will begin next year. The project has an installed capacity of 165 MW and average generation of 92 MW.

The energy will be used to replace Ferbasa's current service, which emphasizes that the contract does not represent an increase in production capacity. For the company, the strategy is to guarantee the use of electricity in the long term to reduce the cost of purchasing inputs.
