Wind energy in Brazil: Fuhrländer to Sell $524 Million of Wind Turbines

 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.
