German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has secured a new wind turbine supply contract in Brazil.

According to the 84MW contract, Nordex will deliver 24 of its AW132/3465 turbines for the fourth construction phase of a 256MW wind farm complex.

The complex is located in the state of Rio Grande do Norte near the city of São Miguel do Gostoso on the Atlantic.

In addition, the German turbine manufacturer also signed a 15-year service agreement for maintenance and repair of the turbines.

Nordex also delivered and installed 50 AW132 turbines for the previous three phases of the wind farm complex.

Nordex said that it will install 24 wind turbines in the fourth phase of the project on 120m concrete towers.

The concrete towers for the wind facility will be produced at its own local factory in Areia Branca located near the site, while the nacelles will be built in the manufacturer’s plant in Bahia.

The German company said that it will obtain the rotor blades from Brazil to ensure that the project includes the maximum share of local production.

Following the completion of the fourth phase, the wind facility will feature 74 wind turbines.

In July 2018, Nordex signed a contract with a global utility company Enel Green Power to supply and install turbines with 595MW capacity for Lagoa dos Ventos wind farm in Brazil.
