Vestas signs deal with Omega Energia for Assurua 4 project

Vestas V155-3.3 MW wind turbine

Vestas has signed a new agreement with Omega Energia for the 212 MW Assurua 4 project, located in the cities of Gentio do Ouro and Xique-Xique, in Bahia.

Vestas said the order includes 47 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in 4.5 MW Power Optimised Mode as well as a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contract.

Vestas said it has surpassed the milestone of 5 GW of order intake in Brazil for the V150 wind turbines in 4.2 MW standard rating and 4.5 MW Power Optimised Modes. The milestone is reached a year and a half after the turbine variant started being produced in the country.

Vestas is producing the wind turbines locally under the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) FINAME rules, creating jobs and expanding Brazil’s wind energy industry.

Vestas secured a global order intake of more than 14 GW since the launch of V150-4.2 MW wind turbine in 2017.

“We achieved this 5 GW milestone, consolidating V150-4.2 MW as the best-selling turbine model ever in Brazil,” Eduardo Ricotta, President of Vestas Latin America, said.

The delivery of wind turbines is planned for the second half of 2022, with commissioning scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.
