ALSTOM TO SUPPLY EIGHT ADDITIONAL ECO 122 WIND TURBINES TO ENERPLAN IN BRAZIL

PARIS - Alstom signed a contract worth about EUR26 million ($33 million) with Enerplan, a power company from the Brazilian group Oleoplan, to supply 8 wind turbines to the Pontal 2A wind project in the South of Brazil.

This is the second contract with Enerplan, which also ordered 10 units last year for the first wind farm of Pontal project. The equipment will be installed in Viamao, city of Rio Grande do Sul State. The commissioning of the project is scheduled by end 2015. With the two contracts combined, Alstom will supply 18 units of ECO 122 wind turbines, generating 2.7 MW each.

The ECO 122 wind turbine has the biggest rotor diameter within the 2 MW to 3 MW onshore turbine segment. It combines high power and high capacity factor[2] to boost energy yield in low wind regions, and thus fits perfectly with the Brazilian wind conditions.

The nacelles of the wind turbines will be manufactured at Alstom's plant in Bahia State and the towers will be produced at Alstom's new facility in Canoas. Alstom will also be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the wind turbines for five years.

The ECO 122 is the latest evolution of Alstom's proven ECO 100 turbine platform, and the result of more than 30 years of experience in wind turbine design.

The ECO 100 platform now has more than 2,000 MW installed or under construction worldwide and over 200,000 cumulative operating hours since 2008. All Alstom wind turbines are based upon the unique and proven Alstom Pure Torque rotor support concept that protects the drive train from deflection loads, ensuring higher reliability and lower maintenance costs.
