An Italian company has been awarded contracts to develop 553MW worth of solar projects in Brazil.
Enel Green Power (EGP) will develop three solar farms in different locations of the country.
The Horizonte, Lapa and Vona Olinda projects will have a capacity of 103MW, 158MW and 292MW respectively.
They will help save around 350,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.
The company will invest around $600 million (£384m) in the construction of the plants which are expected to be completed by 2017.
It also claims that the new 20-year deals make the firm the “top player across the entire solar industry in Brazil”.
