GE Renewable Energy has signed an agreement with ENGIE to supply 144 of its 2.5-116 turbines for the Umburanas Wind Farm Complex, located in upstate Bahia, Brazil.
The 360 MW project will add to the 326.7 MW under commissioning by GE Renewable Energy at the neighboring Campo Largo I wind farm, also owned by ENGIE.
Vikas Anand, general manager of GE’s onshore wind business for the Americas, says, “Together, these two wind farms represent our largest volume of turbines in a single cluster in Brazil.”
GE Renewable Energy will also be providing 10 years of operations and maintenance at the Umburanas project, whose construction has already begun. GE’s 2.5-116 turbine for Umburanas will feature 90-meter-tall towers.
The Campo Largo 1 site is also currently under construction and will begin commercial operations in January 2019.
