Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has secured a wind turbine supply contract in Brazil from global power company AES.

AES placed the order with SGRE for the Tucano wind farm, which is located in the state of Bahia and scheduled for commissioning next year.

As per the terms of the contract, SGRE will supply its AES with 52 units of its SG 5.8-170 wind turbines, which will operate at up to 6.2MW.

With a total installed capacity of 312MW, the deal is said to be the largest for the Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform to date.

Siemens Gamesa Onshore business unit CEO Alfonso Faubel said: “Over the last decade, Siemens Gamesa has shown an unmatched commitment towards the Brazilian market, bringing its latest technologies and investing heavily in localising production and creating jobs.

“We are happy to build on that history and see the footprint of our Siemens Gamesa 5.X expanding globally, demonstrating its adaptability to all markets.”

SGRE noted that it will upgrade its nacelle assembly plant in Camaçari to produce Siemens Gamesa 5.X platform locally.

Under the Energy Ten-Year plan (PDE 2029), the Brazilian market is expected to contract 3GW of wind energy capacity per year in the next decade.

Last month, SGRE secured the first order for its 170m rotor onshore turbine in Sweden. The order was placed by Danish developer and wind turbine operator Eurowind Energy for its 46MW Knöstad project.
