Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA (GAM), Spain’s largest wind-turbine maker, agreed to provide 72 turbines for six wind farms in southern Brazil.
Gamesa will install the 2-megawatt turbines at the projects comprising the Chui wind complex in Rio Grande do Sul, the Zamudio, Spain-based company said today in a statement on its website. The turbines are expected to be operational in the first quarter of next year.
The contract brings Gamesa’s total orders in the country to more than 1,400 megawatts. It’s the second deal with the Florianopolis, Brazil-based developer Eolicas do Sul, after a 258-megawatt deal signed in 2012.
Eolicas do Sul is a joint venture of the state-run power utility Eletrosul Centrais Eletricas SA and Rio Bravo Investimentos SA.
