Danish wind turbine supplier Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said today it has received a 151-MW firm and unconditional order for the Folha Larga wind project in the Brazilian state of Bahia.
More specifically, developer Casa dos Ventos has purchased 36 units of the V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, which, Vestas said earlier this year, will be manufactured in Brazil. The Danish company now has a total order intake of 252 MW for this particular turbine model.
Casa dos Ventos has also contracted Vestas to operate and maintain the machines over the next 20 years. Deliveries are expected in the first quarter of 2020, while commissioning is scheduled to occur by the end of the second quarter of the same year.
“We intend to begin construction in 2019 and have the wind park fully operational by 2020, ahead of its regulatory schedule," stated Lucas Araripe, director of Casa dos Ventos.
