The agreement with CER includes the supply, transport, installation and commissioning of 34 G97-2.0 MW turbines at the Assuruá II, Assuruá V and Assuruá VII wind farms within the Xique-Xique wind complex. The wind turbines, which will be made at Gamesa’s local Camaçari factory, are scheduled for delivery during the second quarter of 2015.
The contract signed with Ventos dos Guarás I Energias Renováveis, a joint venture between Atlantic Energias Renováveis and Casa dos Ventos also includes the supply, transport, installation and commissioning of another 15 turbines of the same model at the Ventos dos Guarás I wind farm in the Morrinhos complex. These turbines will be delivered to the client during the third quarter of next year.
Construction of both these projects, which are located in the state of Bahia in north-east Brazil, is expected to wrap up in December 2015. Gamesa will also provide the operation and maintenance services at these facilities for 15 years.
With these two new orders for an aggregate 98 MW, Gamesa has now received firm orders for the supply of 1,394 MW of its turbines to projects being built in the country’s windiest regions. As of December 2013, Gamesa had installed 452 MW of capacity in Brazil.
