Neoenergia – Oitis Wind Farm
Controlled by the Spanish group Iberdrola, Neoenergia has a history of more than 20 years in Brazil. Activities began in 1997, with investments in electricity distribution in Bahia and Rio Grande do Norte. Since then, Neoenergia has expanded its activities to be a long-term investor in the country. Today, the company is one of the most significant players in Brazil’s energy sector, with integrated and diversified operations. It has energy distribution, generation, transmission, and commercialization assets in 18 states and the Federal District.
Protagonizing the company’s energy transition and decarbonization strategy, Brazil’s largest wind power complex is being built, with an expected conclusion by 2023. Neoenergia | Oitis is formed by 12 wind farms, located in Piauí and Bahia. Once operational, the enterprise will have an installed capacity of 566.5 MW of clean and renewable energy, avoiding the emission of 1.2 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere for 20 years.
Among the construction outcomes were a substation and a transmission line to ensure that the energy produced in the wind complex will reach the final consumers.
And Netcon Americas was part of this important project through the supply, on an “EPC/TurnKey” basis, of the Operational and Corporate Networks of the Telecommunications System for the transmission facilities of the Oitis Substation, located in the Municipality of Dom Inocêncio – PI, and the respective Connection Bay at the Queimada Nova II Substation, located in the Municipality of Queimada Nova – PI.
The supply included the execution of the entire Project Management, the elaboration of the Design Project, and the delivery of equipment, materials, and specialized engineering services for the implementation and commissioning of the telecommunications systems.
Besides the integration of the systems, Netcon Americas also carried out, in its industrial plant, the assembly, the Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT), in the presence of the client, and the delivery of six Telecommunication Panels for the enterprise.
Netcon Americas guarantee the quality of the enterprise’s integrated telecommunications solution through its specialized and qualified professionals to execute all the proposed services with excellence, from the elaboration of the projects to the start-up of the telecommunications system.
“There was a pro-activity, a concern, a commitment from Netcon to meet the initial schedule, anticipating future problems and seeking solutions to avoid possible unforeseen events and delays. The planning part was outstanding, making the control and monitoring of the work visible, besides the know-how that positively surprised.”Vinicius Dalri, Telecommunications Engineer
Netcon Americas and Neoenergia, in partnership, are proud to contribute and elevate Brazil to a new position in the global energy and sustainable level.
“Netcon has been a pleasant surprise for Neoenergia. Since the first Kickoff meeting with this supplier, we have already noticed the spirit and organization in the project management and the commitment of the whole team (from the commercial area, through the project management and technical areas, to its board of directors).
During the project’s execution, Netcon always sought transparency with Neoenergia, anticipating possible risks to mitigate or avoid them so that there would be no impact on the project.
I highlight as one of Netcon’s strong points the partnership it seeks with the client, sparing no effort for its satisfaction, and the good win-win relationship between both.
I recommend Netcon without any doubt for projects in the energy sector.”Sidney Rodrigues do Nascimento, Coordinator of Projects and Implantation
