Frankfurt (Germany), Jun 24 (EFE) .- The wind turbine manufacturer Nordex, in which Acciona owns 36.4%, has been awarded a contract for almost 314 megawatts for the Cajuína wind farm in Brazil.
Nordex reported this Thursday that the wind farm consists of 55 N163 / 5.X turbines of the Delta4000 series, which it must supply and install.
The contract also includes the turbine maintenance service for five years with the option to extend it up to twenty years.
The wind farm is located 100 kilometers west of the city of Natal in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, where the average constant wind speed is 9.2 m / s, and has a high capacity factor.
Installation of the turbines, which will be supplied in a specific operating mode for the 5.7 megawatt project, is scheduled for summer 2022.
Nordex will produce the turbines, including rotor blades and 120-meter-high concrete towers, domestically.
Nordex, which employs 8,500 people, installed in 2020 a wind power capacity of more than 33 gigawatts in more than 40 markets and had a turnover of 4.6 billion euros.
It has factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the USA, India and Mexico and its product portfolio focuses on onshore wind turbines of class 4 to 5.X megawatts tailor-made for the market demands of countries with limited space and regions with limited power grid capacity.
