The year is getting to its end and Atlantic have only reasons to celebrate: 2019 was a year of hard work, but above all, of great accomplishments and achievements. We share all the year’s accomplishments with fundamental allies for the achieved results. We would like to thank our employees team for the courage and daily determination. We would like to thank the communities around our developments for their trust, which has allowed us to establish a friendly and productive relationship around common projects with great social and environmental impact. Finally, we would like to thank all our partners, who believed in the potential of renewable energies.
We started 2019 with the right foot, with full commercial operation of Lagoa do Barro Wind Complex, a venture achieved in record time. In February we inaugurated the Rural Sanitation Program, which, through an ecological sewage treatment system, serves more than 300 families living in communities neighboring the Morrinho Wind Farm.
An unprecedented partnership was formed with the Association of Small Rural Producers of Community of Manguinha, in Lagoa do Barro – Piaui, to modernize and expand the spaces for beekeeping in the region. Speaking of partnership, together with Napéia Consultoria and Projects, we promoted the second edition of the Cleaning Task Force in Balneário Hermenegildo, in the south coast, which removed a ton of plastics, electronics and other materials discarded incorrectly.
In June 2019, according to a bulletin published by the National Electric System Operator (ONS), we exceeded the energy generation target and began to support the Social Observatory project, an initiative of the Global Shapers Hub, which aims to give voice to young protagonists in discussions on the future of the planet.
And we don’t stop there. We offer a painting course at the Residents’ Association of the community of Papagaio, in Campo Formoso, Bahia, which also hosted an edition of the Barracão da Saúde, held by Atlantic, in partnership with the local city hall to contemplate the health demands of the communities.
One of Atlantic’s greatest achievements this year was the A-6 Energy Auction, which will enable the investment of more than 1 billion reais in the Lagoa do Barro Wind Complex, Piauí, besides the implementation of new projects in the cities of Tanque Novo and Caetité, Bahia.
Facing all these events, we cannot forget the great milestone in our history: the 10-year anniversary of Atlantic. We build a sustainable future every day, under the legacy of transformation and preservation. In 2019, the work we developed during this journey gave us recognition, awards and certifications.

All the triumphs that the winds of 2019 brought us are, already, our greatest asset, which is why we are all proud of: employees, communities, partners and friends, whom we wish a Merry Christmas and that 2020 renews our energies for an even more prosperous future, now as part of the China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN).
