EDF Renewables and Serena conclude the share swap in renewable projects

Rio de Janeiro, March 28th, 2024 – EDF Renewables Brasil and Serena Geração (formerly Omega Geração S.A.) have concluded, on March 28, 2024, the share swap operation of their respective stakes in the assets of the Pirapora Solar Complex and the Ventos da Bahia Wind Farm.

With the completion of the operation, EDF Renewables Brasil becomes the sole owner of 100% of the Photovoltaic Plants that make up the Pirapora Solar Complex, including phases 1, 2, and 3, and Serena Geração becomes the sole owner of 100% of the Wind Turbines that make up the Ventos da Bahia Wind Farm, including phases 1, 2, and 3. The companies thus conclude the joint venture between them.

About the Ventos da Bahia Wind Farm:

The park is composed of three phases that total an investment of R$ 1.85 billion, financed by BNB and BNDES. Ventos da Bahia has 108 wind turbines, with a total installed capacity of 365 MW. The asset has several power purchase agreements in the free market (ACL) and in the regulated market (ACR) and has invested over R$ 3.6 million in social projects in nearby communities. Ventos da Bahia was a project built and operated by EDF Renewables. The respective phases of the project were acquired by Serena (formerly Omega Geração) starting in 2020, with a 50% stake. With the completion of the share swap, the Ventos da Bahia Wind Farm is no longer part of the portfolio of assets operated by EDF Renewables.

The Pirapora Complex is located in southeastern Brazil, in the state of Minas Gerais. The Pirapora Photovoltaic Plants have a gross capacity of 400 MWp and represent one of the largest solar complexes in South America.
