The initial study focused on three wind farms for two alternative solutions, with 18 and 24 wind turbines with a unit power of 1 800 kW or 1 300 kW, respectively.

In the final solution, the Serra da Freita Wind Farm, consists of 16 wind turbines with 2.3 MW of unit power and a total installed power of 36.4 MW, being 8 located at Serra da Freita I Wind Farm and the other 8 at Serra da Freita II Wind Farm.

The connection of the Wind Farm to the power grid is carried out through a 60 kV electric line with a 20 km extension that connects at the Devesa Velha substation.

The environmental studies included:

  • Characterization of the reference situation in order to identify and limit archaeological and ecological sensitive areas, which could condition the establishment of the wind farm;
  • Identification, forecast and assessment of potential impacts, positive or negative, arising from the implementation of the wind farm, immediate or long term, during the construction, exploration and decommissioning phases;
  • Definition of a set of measures capable of minimizing the identified potential negative impacts.

Environmental Monitoring was carried out during the pre-construction and construction phase and during the initial exploration phase.
