Nordex Group receives order to supply 59 MW to Brazil

Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group has received another order for AW132/3465 turbines from Brazil. The manufacturer will supply 17 turbines for its regular customer Voltalia Brasil, for its 58.8 MW Ventos Serra do Mel 4 (VSM4) wind farm. The order also includes a service agreement for service and maintenance of the turbines for a period of 15 years.

"We are delighted that Voltalia has again placed its confidence in us,” says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group. In 2013, the Nordex Group delivered its first turbines to one of Voltalia’s Brazilian projects, and today is now responsible for the Service and maintenance of around 400 MW for the company.

The wind farm VSM 4 will be built in Voltalia’s Serra Branca Cluster located in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, near to the city of Serra do Mel in the north-east of Brazil.

The Nordex Group will install the 17 turbines for VSM 4 on 120 metre concrete towers produced by its local factory in Areia Branca, Rio Grande do Norte. In order to ensure the project includes a maximum local content, the Nordex Group will manufacture the nacelles in its plant in Simões Filho in Bahia as well as purchasing the rotor blades from Brazil.

Installation works on VSM 4 are due to start in 2020, with full commissioning scheduled for spring 2021.
