Vestas has signed an agreement with Omega Energia for supplying turbines for a 212 MW wind power project. The order includes 47 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in 4.5 MW power optimised mode along with a 10-year active output management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contract.
The project, known as Assuruá 4 project, will be located in the cities of Gentio do Ouro and Xique-Xique, in Bahia, Brazil. The wind turbines are locally produced under the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) FINAME rules. The delivery of wind turbines is planned for the second half of 2022, with commissioning scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.
A year and a half after the turbine variant started being produced in the country, Vestas has now surpassed the milestone of 5 GW of order intake in Brazil for the V150 wind turbines in 4.2 MW standard rating and 4.5 MW power optimised modes. The V150-4.2 MW wind turbine was launched in 2017 and has since then secured a global order intake of more than 14 GW.
“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 10-year service agreement, will provide our partner long-term certainty for their first greenfield project in Bahia” said Eduardo Ricotta, President of Vestas Latin America.
