ACCIONA Windpower has inked a supply agreement with developer Voltalia for the 99 MW Vila Para wind farm, located in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. The contract covers the supply, transportation, installation and commissioning of 3-MW AW125/3000 wind turbines, as well as a long-term maintenance service agreement.
ACCIONA will assemble the turbines in its Simoes Filho, Bahia, plant, which the company opened last December. The company also will build the turbines' 120-meter towers at its Areia Branca plant, located near the future wind farm.
ACCIONA notes the Vila Para project represents its fourth supply contract for wind farms in which Voltalia holds a stake in Rio Grande do Norte. With this new contract, ACCIONA Windpower says it has sold 1,119 MW of capacity in Brazil since it began marketing its AW3000 wind turbine in 2012.
