April 29 (Renewables Now) - Brazilian energy trader 2W Energia announced this week it has plans to build an over 200-MW park combining wind and solar energy in the country’s Northeastern region.

Planned for the Rio Grande do Norte or Ceara states, the complex’s wind portion may come first as this source has a more competitive cost in Brazil, 2W Energia’s CIO Walter Tatoni said during the 2W Day event.

No additional information about the project was given as even its precise location has not yet been decided.

At present, 2W Energia is working on two wind farms – the 138.6-MW Anemus in Rio Grande do Norte and the 261-MW Kairos in Ceara. The former is expected to commence operations in September 2022. Together, these assets represent an investment of more than BRL 2 billion (USD 400m/EUR 381m), the firm noted.
