Iberdrola began construction at its second wind farm in Brazil, Mel II, last month. Mel II is the first of ten projects, with a total capacity of 288 MW, which the firm will build in Brazil between 2012 and 2013. Mel II, in Rio Grande do Norte, will have capacity of 20MW and will be equipped with ten Gamesa 2MW G90 turbines. It follows on from the Río do Fogo project, also in Rio Grande do Norte, which has installed capacity of 49MW. Iberdrola’s Brazilian projects are being developed in a partnership with Neoenergia, a Brazilian holding company. The total investment for these projects will amount to R$1.1bn (EUR480m).
