November 30 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) announced today it has signed a contract to supply turbines for a 370-MW wind farm project in Brazil.

The order placed by Brazilian energy company AES Brasil Energia SA (BVMF:AESB3), part of US power firm AES Corp (NYSE:AES), calls for the supply and installation of 65 units of the Nordex N163/5.X machines in an operating mode of 5.7 MW.
