March 21 (Renewables Now) - Engie Brasil Energia and Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) are in negotiations for the supply of wind turbines to the former's 361-MW Campo Largo 2 complex, Reuters reports, quoting a source.

To be built in Bahia state, the wind cluster will require an estimated investment of BRL 1.6 billion (USD 423.7m/EUR 370.9m) from the Brazilian subsidiary of French utility Engie SA (EPA:ENGI), with commissioning scheduled for 2021. So far, Engie Brasil Energia has not used Vestas turbines in Brazil, the news agency said.

Last month, Engie's board cleared the investment in Campo Largo 2, whose output will be directed to customers in the free market. The project represents an expansion of the 326-MW Campo Largo wind cluster that is already in operation.
