Nordex Group secures 595MW contract in Brazil

Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group has secured a contract from global utility firm Enel Green Power to supply and install turbines with 595MW capacity for Lagoa dos Ventos wind farm in Brazil.

Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group has secured a contract from global utility firm Enel Green Power to supply and install turbines with 595MW capacity for Lagoa dos Ventos wind farm in Brazil.

Under the terms of the contract, Nordex will supply 191 AW125 turbines, which will be mounted on top of 120m concrete towers.

The towers will be manufactured by Nordex at its own plant in Brazil to lower costs and minimise the environmental footprint.

"With the latest contract, the total capacity installed and under construction by Nordex in Brazil will be increased to 1.9GW."

The plant was opened in April this year in the North Brazilian state of Brazil Piaui for the production of the 65 towers required for the Lagoa do Barro wind farm.

With this step, Nordex could optimise the construction costs of the wind farm and complete construction work with minimum environmental impact.

Lagoa dos Ventos wind farm will be owned and operated by Enel Green Power with which Nordex has previously worked successfully in different markets.

Nordex intends to start installation works at the wind farm from next October, and will later provide service for the turbines for at least two years.

With the latest contract, the total capacity installed and under construction by Nordex in Brazil will be increased to 1.9GW.

Last month, Nordex received a contract from Brazilian utility Furnas for supplying and installing its turbines at the 123MW Fortim wind farm.

With a workforce of nearly 5,000 employees, the Nordex Group production network comprises of plants located in Germany, Spain, Brazil, Indian and the US.
