The 4 GW solar project will be built in the Exportation Free Zone of Parnaíba, Bom Princípio do Piauí, starting in 2025. The $1.98 billion plant will produce hydrogen for the ammonia industry in Parnaíba, with the first 3 GW phase expected to be completed between mid-2025 and 2028.

In October 2023, the government of Piauí announced an agreement to produce and export 5 GW of green ammonia.
