Brazil's Gamesa received an order from Votorantim Energy to supply, transport, install and commission 98 G114-2.0 MW turbines at seven wind farms in Piau, a state in northeast Brazil, by the end of 2017.
The new turbine model has been widely accepted in Brazil, where 500 of the company's G114-2.0 MW models currently are in operation across the country. The turbines are equipped with Gamesa's MaxPower technology, which increases output from 196 MW to 205.8 MW and improves nominal capacity from 2.0 MW to 2.1 MW. The cutting-edge technology also helps the turbines produce more energy with a lower cost.
Gamesa also will be responsible for the maintenance of the seven wind farms through 2020.
