Vestas has received a 409 MW order from the joint venture between Votorantim Energia and the Canadian fund CPP Investments for the projects Ventos do Piauí II and Ventos do Piauí III, in Serra do Inácio, in the state of Piauí, in Brazil.
The contract includes the supply and commissioning of V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as a 20-year ‘Active Output Management 5000’ (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to ensure optimised performance for the lifetime of the project.
Recently, Vestas announced it had exceeded 10 GW in the firm order intake for V150-4.2 MW turbines globally. With this order Vestas has secured almost 3.5 GW of orders for the turbine variant in Brazil, helped by the WTG’s excellent fit with the country’s wind conditions.
Turbine delivery will begin in the second half of 2021 with commissioning scheduled for 2022.
