Vestas has signed a new agreement with Casa dos Ventos for a 189 MW wind project in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. As the fifth contract between the companies, the order takes the cooperation to surpass the 1.7 GW mark and highlights Casa dos Ventos' position as Vestas' largest customer in Latin America and one of the largest investors in the development of wind projects in the country.

The order includes 42 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in 4.5 MW Power Optimised Mode as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service contract, optimising the energy production for the lifetime of the project.

“We are happy with the long-term partnership with Casa dos Ventos. Vestas is ready to drive the energy transition forward in Brazil, a country with enormous wind potential and one that embraces renewable energies like no one else. It is our mission to increasingly expand the share of wind energy in the Brazilian energy mix, and this new agreement is another step in the right direction”, says Eduardo Ricotta, President of Vestas Latin America.

The project’s output will be used by Casa dos Ventos to supply corporate customers with renewable energy through corporate power purchase agreements (PPA).

“This new agreement and the new project reinforce our leading role in supporting corporate customers in their transition to sustainable and low-cost energy consumption”, says Lucas Araripe, director of new business at Casa dos Ventos.

The delivery of wind turbines is planned for the fourth quarter of 2023 and first quarter of 2024, with commissioning scheduled for the second quarter of 2024.
