Following the August 31 launch of the construction of 17 solar photovoltaic (PV) units to power the facilities of Vivo, a subsidiary of the Telefonica Group in Brazil, Helexia is adding 8 units totaling 27 megawatts to this 20-year contract. Initially planned for 60 megawatts, the capacity is therefore increased to 87 megawatts, turning Helexia as the leading Solar PV supplier of Distributed Energy Ressources (DER) to Telefonica in Brazil.

The additional units will be located in the states of Amazonas, Tocantins, Sao Paulo, and the Rio Grande do Sul. Commercial operation is expected to start in the second half of 2022

Helexia’s expertise as a specialist in decentralized solar production units combined with Voltalia’s knowledge of the Brazilian market are crowned by the renewed confidence from this partner.
