Siemens Gamesa will supply 36 turbines of the model SG 3.4-132, which offers a flexible power rating of 3.55 MW, adding up to a total nominal capacity of 128 MW.
The VSM 2 wind complex is located in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte in the northeastern region of the country. The commissioning is expected in 2020.
The latest contract is the third collaboration on Brazilian projects between the two companies. Earlier, Voltalia chose Siemens Gamesa’s wind turbines for its projects Vila Acre I and Ventos da Serra do Mel 1.
Since 2016, Siemens Gamesa has secured wind turbine orders totalling 318 MW from Voltalia’s operations in Brazil.
