Spanish engineering company Siemens Gamesa has secured a contract from Brennand Investimentos to supply wind turbines for the Arizona and Honorato windfarms in Sento Sé, Bahia, Brazil.
Under the terms of the contract, Siemens Gamesa will supply 27 SG 3.4-132 wind turbines for the two windfarms, with an installed capacity of 94MW.
Siemens Gamesa Brazil onshore managing director Roberto Prida said: “This is the first contract we have signed with Brennand Investimentos and we feel very proud to be considered a strategic partner for this and future projects.
“Like Brennand Energia and Brennand Investimentos, we are committed to continue reducing the levelized cost of energy, making wind power even more affordable and efficient to meet the energy needs of the country’s Northeast Region.”
Delivery of the turbines is expected to take place during the middle of 2020. The project will add 94MW of power to the 247.45MW produced by Brennand Energia, at eight wind farms in Sento Sé.
Brennand Investimentos CEO Mozart Siqueira said: “We hope that the signing of this agreement will be the beginning of a long-term partnership between our companies and that the introduction of new products by Siemens Gamesa will continue with the demonstrated quality and competitiveness.
“The SG 3.4-132 onshore wind turbine is the most competitive product in its segment, featuring optimal levelised cost of energy for medium and high winds, rotor diameter of 132m, a flexible power rating of 3.3-3.75MW depending on the project requirements, and low risk based on proven technologies and enhanced performance with the highest levels of reliability.”
Earlier in 2019, SG 3.4-132 turbine model received the BNDES FINAME certificate, which means that it meets the requirements of the development bank’s lines of financing.
