Alstom has signed two contracts, valued at EUR 14 million, to supply Voltalia Energia do Brasil with electrical balance-of-plant systems. The systems will connect two wind farm complexes in the northeast of Brazil, Sao Miguel do Gostoso and Vila Amazonas, to the transmission grid and inject approximately 201 MW of wind power into the Brazilian grid network.
Alstom says its full turnkey scope includes medium- and high-voltage systems. High-voltage equipment will be manufactured locally in the company's plants, Itajuba and Canoas, in Brazil.
"In the past year, Alstom has been selected in Brazil for more than 10 projects in the wind energy sector. We are proud to be selected by Voltalia for these two contracts, reinforcing Alstom's growing leadership in the wind segment in Brazil," says Sergio Gomes, vice president of Alstom Grid.
