Construction work has started on the Vila Acre wind farm in Brazil.

Renewable energy company Voltalia has appointed Brazilian firm Mercurius to undertake civil engineering works for the project.

When completed, the wind farm will have an installed capacity of 27MW and is expected to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2017.

The Vila Acre wind farm is part of Voltalia’s Serra Branca cluster of energy projects, with a total 1.2GW potential output.

The Serra Branca cluster also incorporates the Vila Para wind farm. Currently, 97% of the wind farm is already in production due to the completion of 32 turbines of the total 33 turbines (99MW) ahead of schedule. The final turbine is expected to be completed imminently.
