Commercial operations will only start when connection, capacity and environmental contract requirements are met.
Mundaú is located on sand dunes close to the sea shore. It is made up of 13 Siemens SWT 2.3-101 turbines.
Total investment in the project was R$128m (US$54m), of which R$87.4m was financed by Brazil's National Development bank (BNDES).
The wind farm is one of five that Tractebel is building to sell power in Brazil’s non-regulated market.
The other four – Guajirú (30MW), Fleixeiras (30MW), Beberibe (25MW) and Pedra do Sal (18MW) –are already in operation.
