Echoenergia orders 24 V110 2MW turbines for two wind farms
Vestas has won an order to supply and install 24 V110 2MW turbines for two wind farms in Brazil.
The 22MW Boa Esperança 1 and 31MW Pedra do Reino 4 projects are located in the region of Sobradinho in Bahía.
The order was made by new Vestas customer Echoenergia, and derived from a Brazilian energy auction held in 2014. It includes a 10-year active output management service contract.
Vestas managing director for Brazil and Southern LatAm Rogerio S Zampronha: "These two contracts show our strengths within customised solutions for auction bids and highlight our ability to win new projects in an otherwise quiet Brazilian wind market.
“The two wind parks are the first time we partner with Echoenergia and we are convinced our solutions' strong performance will be the foundation of a long-lasting collaboration".
The machines are expected to be manufactured locally and commissioned next year.
