With a capacity of 149 MW, the plant is scheduled to come into operation in July when it will start generating enough energy to power a 150,000-home city. Neoenergia has already started to test the solar park located in the municipality of Santa Luzia, in the state of Paraíba.

Both the manufacture of the central inverters and the integration of the substations were conducted locally, at the company's production plant in Campinas, a city in the state of Sao Paulo, where it has been based for more than 20 years. Specifically, 18 power stations or substations have been supplied, each including four central inverters, thus achieving a “turnkey” 6.56 MW solution.

Substation protection and control cabinets have also been equipped with IEC61850 IEDs from the INGEPAC family, which have been manufactured at Ingeteam's facilities in Curitiba, Brazil. The Luzia 138/34.5 kV substation facility will evacuate the 130 MW of capacity generated by the solar complex.

With the commissioning of this project and the ongoing installation of others, solar power supplied by Ingeteam in the country now totals 1.5 GW.

“We are one of the few inverter manufacturers that can offer local production, so we are now much more predominant, as this is one of the requirements of the Brazilian authorities for the development of new energy projects” said José Nardi, director of Ingeteam's solar business in Brazil.
