Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy recently signed its third contract with French renewables company Voltalia to supply wind turbines for a 128-megawatt (MW) wind farm project in Brazil, the energy giant announced Thursday.
The scope of the contract includes the supply of 36 units of the SG 3.4-132 wind turbine model with a flexible power rating of 3.55 MW for the Ventos da Serra do Mel 2 wind complex located in the northeastern state of Rio Grande do Norte. Commissioning is planned for 2020.
Previously, Siemens Gamesa worked with Voltalia on two other wind farms in Brazil: Vila Acre I (27 MW, 13 units of SG 2.1-114) and Ventos da Serra do Mel 1 (163 MW, 47 units of SG 3.4-132).
"In total, Siemens Gamesa has been awarded a total of 318 MW by Voltalia in Brazil since 2016," the statement said.
According to the press release, Siemens Gamesa has provided more than 3.1 gigawatts (more than 1,500 units) of output capacity for nearly 60 project sites across Brazil since 2012. The company has a strong footprint in the country consisting of manufacturing, service and offices.
