Nordex has again received an order for AW132/3465 wind turbines from Brazil. For its new customer TODA Energia do Brasil, the manufacturer will supply eight wind turbines for a 27.7 MW wind farm. The wind power project is located in the French developer Voltalia’s 2.4 GW Serra Branca wind and solar cluster in north-eastern Brazil. The order also includes the service of the turbines for 15 years.
Construction is scheduled to start in March 2021. The infrastructure work and operation will be carried out by Voltalia for TODA Energia do Brasil. The Nordex Group will install the eight wind turbines on 120-metre concrete towers produced at its local plant in Areia Branca in Rio Grande do Norte. The wind power project forms part of the 2.4 GW Serra Branca cluster to which the Nordex Group has already provided wind turbines with 341 MW.
