GE Supplying 70 Megawatts of Turbines for Omega’s Brazil Project

General Electric Co. (GE), the largest U.S. producer of wind turbines, agreed to supply 70 megawatts of systems to Omega Energia for a wind farm in northeast Brazil.

GE will deliver 32 turbines for the project in Piaui, the first order for its 2.2-107 model, the Fairfield, Connecticut-based company said in a statement today. Terms weren’t disclosed.

The company sold more than 1 gigawatt of turbines in Brazil last year. There’s another 1 gigawatt of GE wind systems already in operation in the country, according to the statement.
