Vestas signed an agreement with 2W Energia for the 113 MW Kairos wind farm, located in the municipality of Icapuí in the state of Ceará, Brazil.
The order includes 25 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines, as well as an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contract, which optimizes energy production over the life of the project.
With this project, Vestas surpasses the milestone of 6 GW of orders received in Brazil for the V150-4.2 MW wind turbine, including the 4.5 MW variant, consolidating itself as the best-selling wind turbine model of all time in Brazil due to its excellent adaptation to local wind conditions and its unmatched levelized cost of energy. Globally, the V150-4.2 MW turbine has exceeded 17.5 GW in order intake.
“We are pleased to have 2W as our new customer with this first deal.

Wind turbine delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2023, and commissioning is scheduled for the last quarter of the same year.
Wind turbines are produced locally under the FINAME rules of the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES), creating jobs and expanding Brazil’s wind energy industry and supporting the government’s initiative to promote renewable energy and a more sustainable energy mix.
