With the latest order from Omega, Vestas has secured more than 5GW of orders in Brazil for its V150 wind turbines. These cover both the 4.2MW standard rating and 4.5MW power optimised modes.

The company started producing the turbine variant in the country a year and a half ago.

The turbines are currently produced locally according to the Brazilian Development Bank’s (BNDES) FINAME rules, which aim to create local jobs and enhance the country’s wind energy industry.

The initiative will also support Brazil’s objective of promoting renewable energy sources and a more sustainable energy mix.

Vestas Latin America president Eduardo Ricotta said: “Omega is a leading player in the Brazilian market and we are certain that the reliability and competitiveness of the V150-4.2 MW turbine, combined with the ten-year service agreement, will provide our partner long-term certainty for their first greenfield project in Bahia.

“We are very proud to achieve this 5GW milestone, consolidating V150-4.2 MW as the best-selling turbine model ever in Brazil. This underlines the turbine’s excellent fit with Brazil’s wind conditions and its unparalleled levellised cost of energy.”

Vestas plans to deliver the wind turbines in the second half of next year, with commissioning scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.

Last December, the company was given a 360MW order from Brazilian firm Casa dos Ventos for its Babilônia project, located in the cities of Morro do Chapéu and Várzea Nova.
