Votorantim has taken an important step towards the diversification of its energy matrix and the generation of another source of clean energy, with cutting-edge and innovative technology. At the beginning of May 2017, the first Votorantim wind turbine in Piauí was set up. This milestone is part of the company’s entry into wind power generation, with an estimated investment of R $ 1.13 billion in the construction of seven wind farms in the Northeast of Brazil.
Also in 2017, Votorantim and Arcelor Mittal Brasil signed an agreement involving their long steel operations in Brazil. Votorantim Siderurgia becomes a subsidiary of ArcelorMittal Brasil and Votorantim holds a minority interest in the capital of ArcelorMittal Brasil.
