The Nordex Group has received an order for the supply and construction of 26 AW132/3465 turbines in Brazil from COPEL–Companhia Paranaense de Energia.
The order also includes machine servicing with a 20-year contract term.
The 90 MW ‘Jandaíra Copel’ wind farm will be constructed in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, near the city of Jandaíra in eastern Brazil. The Nordex Group will manufacture the 26 turbines at their Simões Filho production facility.
The turbines will be installed on concrete towers of 120 meters, which the Group will produce not far from the site at its local plant in Areia Branca.
The company will also have a local source for the rotor blades. The wind farm is expected to be completed by 2022.
