Ecoprojeta, the Brazilian subsidiary of Germany's Projekt Ökovest, has joined the long line of potential wind developers in Brazil to have won installation permits from national energy authority ANEEL. Projekt Ökovest wants to put up 24, 850 kW turbines at two stations. Both the Parque Eolico Pinhal and Parque Eolico de Girua projects are in Rio Grande do Sul. The permit allows Ecoprojeta to set up business as an independent power producer in Pinhal and Girua, grants permission for grid connection at the desired points and imposes an obligation to erect the turbines within the designated time schedule, says the company. The permits run for 30 years. But until the final price details under the Proinfa renewables program are announced, there is no market for wind in Brazil.
