Vestas said the order for the Serra das Almas wind power project includes the supply and installation of 58 V150-4.5 MW wind turbines as well as 28-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement, Vestas’ longest-term AOM in the country.
“We are delighted to engage once more in a new project with EDF Renewables, underling the strong partnership we have globally and our shared vision for a sustainable future and accelerating the energy transition in Brazil,” said Eduardo Ricotta, president of Vestas in Latin America.
“The partnership with Vestas is essential for the construction of our new undertaking in Bahia. Serra das Almas reinforces EDF Renewables´s ambitions in Brazil and our commitment towards carbon neutrality,” said Andre Salgado, CEO of EDF Renewables Brazil.
Vestas leads the Brazilian wind market with nearly 1,400 turbines for more than 5.4 GW wind energy operating throughout the country.
Vestas said it will produce the wind turbines locally under the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) FINAME rules, creating jobs and expanding Brazil’s wind energy industry and supporting the initiative to promote renewables and a more sustainable energy mix.
