Vestas has obtained a 95 MW order from European Energy, in collaboration with Eólica Tecnologia, for the Ouro Branco and Quatro Ventos wind projects in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil.
The order consists of 21 V150-4.2 MW turbines delivered in 4.5 MW Power Optimized Mode with 120 meter towers and a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM5000) service contract to maximize energy generation for the lifetime of the project.
“European Energy is a valued customer to Vestas globally and we look forward to building upon our existing partnership in Brazil. Both projects will feature our most recent 4 MW platform technology, ensuring optimal power production for the local wind conditions and maximum value for our customer’s business case.”Eric Gomes, sales director of Vestas in Brazil.
“This order reiterates European Energy’s commitment with the growth of the renewable energy market in Brazil and with the economic development of the cities of Poção and Macaparana. With this project, we will bring European Energy’s vast experience in wind projects to Brazil and extend our operations in the country. We are optimistic about the opportunities in the segment in 2021 and with the partnerships we’re developing on it.”Jens-Peter Zink, executive vice-president of European Energy.
With this agreement, Vestas further enhances its presence in Brazil, where they have a total order intake for the V150-4.2 MW variant of more than 4.4 GW, underlining the excellent match of the turbine variant to the country’s wind conditions.
