GE CELEBRATES WIND ENERGY MILESTONES IN BRAZIL
Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Source: Iberdrola

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil - GE has achieved a total installed capacity of 1 gigawatt (GW) of wind energy in Brazil. During the first half of 2014, GE connected 381 wind turbines to the grid in Brazil, providing 600 megawatts (MW) of capacity to the country. In one week alone, GE connected 184 of these wind turbines for wind farm developer Renova Energia.

Serveng, another wind farm developer in Brazil, received 106 newly connected GE wind turbines in March.

This week, the Brazilian wind energy association ABEEolica announced that Brazil has reached 5GW of installed wind capacity, a number that is expected to triple by 2018.

GE also announced it produced its 1,000th wind turbine hub in Brazil, which was delivered to Contour Global as part of an 800MW contract with GE in the country. The hub connects the rotor to the tower and nacelle of the wind turbine.

GE is set to produce its first wind turbine machine head, or nacelle, from a newly expanded manufacturing facility in Campinas, Sao Paulo later this year. Additionally, the company opened the second of two new service centers in Brazil in the state of Rio Grande do Norte in June, as part of a $1.5 million investment in Brazil that will create over one hundred skilled jobs.
