Brazil's Rio Grande do Norte state will bring online more than 100MW of wind capacity in the next month as a raft of projects enter their final construction phase, energy think-tank Cerne said on Tuesday.

Wind farms expected to begin operating by the end of December include Santana I (30MW), Santana II (24MW) and Calango 6 (30MW), according to a Cerne statement. Operated by Força Eólica do Brasil, the projects are located in the municipalities of Bodó and Lagoa Nova.
