Casa dos Ventos has announced that the first phase of the cluster (504 MW), which is currently under construction, will be extended by a further 534 MW, making it the largest wind power complex with over 1 GW in Latin America.

Danish turbine manufacturer Vestas will provide a tailor-made solution for the project with V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, some of which will be delivered at 4.3 MW and others at 4.5 MW in power-optimised mode to maximise the site's electricity production while ensuring the lowest energy costs for the energy consumer.

“We are honoured to be able to extend our partnership with Vestas, making us the largest customer of the manufacturer in Latin America and reaffirming our commitment to the development of renewable sources in Brazil. We are convinced that the equipment technology will enable us to extract the region's wind resource in an optimised way, serving our customers with clean, low-cost energy”, explains Lucas Araripe, Director of New Business at Casa dos Ventos.

“We are proud to continue our successful collaboration with Casa dos Ventos and provide them a customised solution that includes our newly introduced 4.5 MW Power Optimised Mode, ensuring maximum value for our customer’s business case,” says Javier Rodriguez President, Vestas Mediterranean. “The scale of this project shows the potential of clean energy in Brazil and it marks a big step forward in the country’s energy transition towards a more sustainable future”.

The contract includes the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines and a 20-year service contract for the Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000). The project is expected to become operational in 2023.
