Petrobras and WEG plan to develop 7 MW onshore turbine

Petrobras and WEG signed a strategic partnership agreement for the joint development of a 7 MW onshore wind turbine, the first of this size – and the largest – to be manufactured in Brazil.

The wind turbine will be 220 meters high from the ground to the blade tip – equivalent to six Christ the Redeemer statues – and weigh 1830 tons – corresponding to the weight of approximately 1660 family cars or 44 Boeing 737s, Petrobas said. The company will invest BRL 130 million in the project, which is already under development by WEG. The agreement covers the development of technologies for manufacturing wind turbine components as well as the construction and testing of a prototype, with technical and commercial considerations by Petrobrás. WEG predicts to start series production of the equipment in 2025.

“As Petrobrás develops expertise and knowledge in the production of high-capacity wind turbines onshore, it paves the way for the development of larger wind turbines, which will be employed in offshore generation projects. On this journey, the transition to offshore wind power offers opportunities to explore the vast wind potential in the country’s coast”, said Petrobrás’ CEO, Jean Paul Prates.

The agreement also promotes the development of state-of-the-art wind turbines. “This project is a crucial step towards the development of a new generation of offshore wind energy equipment, which has great potential for expansion on the Brazilian coast. The experience we will gain with the development of these wind turbines will help us further explore the opportunities of our wind resources, contributing to the diversification of our energy mix and the reduction of our carbon footprint”, affirmed Petrobrás’ Engineering, Technology and Innovation Officer, Carlos José Travassos.
