The Macambira project’s offering of 195GWh in total per year is likely to be commissioned by the third quarter of 2016.

Once operational, the projects will generate enough renewable electricity to meet power requirements of nearly 200,000 residents in the South American country.

Vestas Mediterranean president Marco Graziano said: "This new order strengthens our position in Brazil and proves that the V110-2.0 MW turbine is a very competitive product in this market."
