Wind power in Brazil: Vestas wind turbines for a wind farm

The order takes Vestas to more than 1.5 GW of installed and under construction wind capacity across five states in the Brazil.
Vestas has received a firm an unconditional order for 21 V110-2.0 MW wind turbine for the Cabeço Vermelho I and Cabeço Vermelho II wind park to be located in Rio Grande do Norte. The order placed by Gestamp Eólica Brasil S.A. comprises the supply and installation of the wind turbines as well as a 10-year full-scope Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) service agreement in order to maximise output.

“Gestamp has been a great partner through these years and also the Vestas customer who received the first nacelle produced at our facility in Ceara, certified by FINAME II. We are very lucky to share with a high level customer such as Gestamp, our roadmaps, new project ideas and opportunities”, says Rogério Zampronha, General Manager for Vestas Brazil.

The turbines will be produced in Brazil with delivery planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017, whilst commissioning is expected for the second quarter of 2018.
