GIG portfolio company, Corio Generation, announces plans to develop five Brazilian offshore wind projects

13 June 2022

  • Corio Generation announces plans for its first offshore wind projects in Brazil
  • Collaboration with Brazilian developer Servtec to build five fixed-bottom projects

GIG portfolio company Corio Generation, today announces its plans for offshore wind in Brazil, with five projects totalling more than 5 GW in early-stage development.

Corio intends to develop the five projects, subject to finalisation of documentation and regulatory approvals, alongside a leading Brazilian power generation company Servtec, which has been in the renewables sector for more than 20 years and played a leading role in the establishment of the country’s onshore wind industry.

Corio and Servtec are aiming to apply for leases for the five fixed-bottom projects in the country’s north-eastern, south-eastern and southern maritime areas, ranging from about 500 MW to over 1.2 GW in installed capacity.

With favourable wind speeds along a coastline stretching across 8,000 kilometres, Brazil is seen as a major new growth market for offshore wind. Factors driving demand include the need to identify new sources of low-cost renewable energy, as well as rising electricity demand in heavily populated coastal areas1.

Corio Generation is a GIG portfolio company operating on a standalone basis.
