Wind Park of São Vicente


The wind park of São Vicente completed one year into operation after its recovery, but it should be considered yet under experimental operation. There are still going on some tuning activities for the enhancement of operational performance.

During 2018, only two wind turbine units were operational and the third one started working on February 2019. Generally, the operational performance is considered to be very good, taking into consideration that the wind turbines were installed on 1995 and had been inoperative during seven years.
