Gamesa has signed a contract with Votorantim Energia, the energy arm of a Brazilian conglomerate Votorantim Group, for 98 of its G114-2.0 MW wind turbines.
The turbines – to be located at seven wind farms in Piaui, a state in eastern Brazil – will be equipped with Gamesa's MaxPower technology, which increases the nominal capacity from 2.0 MW to 2.1 MW and thereby boosts output from 196 MW to 205.8 MW.
Gamesa will supply, install, transport and commission the turbines, as well as maintain the wind farms for the next five years. The towers are slated for delivery in 2017.
Gamesa says although this is its first contract with Votorantim Energia, 500 MW of the G114-2.0 MW turbines are currently installed in Brazil.
