Fuhrländer, a German wind power, expects to sign about 900 million reais worth of sales wind farm in Brazil. Wind turbines with 400 megawatts of total wind energy capacity will be supplied to three wind farm developers from a factory Fuhrlander is building in northeast Brazil, according to Bloomberg.
The wind energy company will begin construction in March on a 20 million-real factory in the city of Pecem that initially will be able to produce 20 wind turbines a month.
The wind farm developers are Fuhrlander’s first customers in Brazil. They are among the companies that won contracts to sell power in a December auction. The wind farms must be complete by 2016, he said.
