Nordex secured a 195 MW contract in Brazil
Hamburg, 18 April 2017. The Nordex Group has now secured a major contract for the delivery of 65 AW125/3000 wind turbines. The « Lagoa do Barro » project is composed of eight individual wind farms that will be installed in the state of Piaui in north-eastern Brazil. The wind power systems are to be delivered and installed from mid-2017.
The turbines are designed to make optimum use of the high wind speeds prevailing at these sites. Accordingly, the project planners expect to achieve an above-average capacity factor of around 58%.
The customer and future operator of the wind farms is Atlantic Renewable Energy, a developer and operator of wind and hydropower projects in Brazil. The company is owned by private equity fund Actis, one of the leading investors in the fast-growing emerging markets.
With their commitment to sustainability, both companies are focusing on efficient power stations which can be operated with a minimum environmental impact. Moreover, the projects have been structured to increase local manufacturing content. For this reason, the Nordex Group will be using locally produced towers for the « Lagoa do Barro » complex. « This reduces capex, minimises the environmental impact and creates local jobs, » explains Patxi Landa, Chief Sales Officer at Nordex SE.
