The 24 MW wind farm in Ceará, Brazil, will consist of 12 S95 wind turbines from Suzlon, and is the result of a project partnership between Servtec Group and the Brazilian investment fund manager Rio Bravo Investimentos.
Commissioning of the wind farm is scheduled for December 2013.
Tulsi Tanti, Suzlon's Chairman, says. “Brazil is today a very important economy on the world stage, and a leading adopter of wind energy. As Brazil deepens its commitment to powering economic growth on green energy, we are proud to bring our technology, service offerings and vast experience to this market. With the trust of renowned companies like Servtec, we are poised to make the most of Brazil's wind potential.”
The 150 MW wind farm in Oklahoma, USA, will consist of 73 MM92 wind turbines with Hot Climate Option from Suzlon's subsidiary REpower.
Delivery and installation of the 2.05 MW wind turbines is scheduled for the second half of CY2012.
REpower's CEO, Andreas Nauen, says: “We are pleased to announce our second largest US project to date and supply the reliable MM92 turbines for what will be REpower's first wind farm located in the south central region of the country.”
