Gamesa, a global technology leader in wind energy, has achieved another milestone in its bid to become one of the leading turbine makers in Brazil. The company has signed an agreement with Consórcio Morrinhos to supply 150 MW of capacity in Brazil. This conglomerate is made up of Atlantic Energias Renováveis S.A. and Casa dos Ventos, one of Brazil’s biggest wind energy developers.
The scope of the agreement includes the supply, installation and commissioning of 75 Gamesa G97 2.0 MW wind turbines in five 30 MW wind farms, which Consórcio Morrinhos is planning to build in the town of Campo Formoso in Bahia state. Gamesa expects to start installing the wind turbines in the second half of 2014 and finish by the first half of 2015. Under the agreement, Gamesa will also handle operations and maintenance at all five wind farms for a period of 15 years.
Less than two years on from establishing a manufacturing presence in Brazil, Gamesa has secured contracts covering capacity of almost 1,000 MW
