Siemens Gamesa 94 MW Brazil

Siemens Gamesa has signed its first contract with Brennand Investimentos to supply 27 SG 3.4-132 wind turbines for the Arizona and Honorato wind farms in Sento Sé, Bahia, Brazil with an installed capacity of 94 MW.

Roberto Prida, Onshore Managing Director of Siemens Gamesa in Brazil said that this is the first contract that Siemens Gamesa has signed with Brennand Investimentos and we feel very proud to be considered a strategic partner for this and future projects.

“Like Brennand Energia and Brennand Investimentos, we are committed to continually reducing the levelized cost of energy, making wind power even more affordable and efficient to meet the energy needs of the country’s Northeast Region.”

According to Mozart Siqueira, Chief Executive Officer of Brennand Investimentos, the decision to use the Siemens Gamesa SG 3.4-132 turbine to produce energy for the free market in Brazil was due to its technical characteristics, its suitability for the wind of Sento Sé and the confidence in product quality and maintenance provided by Siemens Gamesa.

“The SG 3.4-132 onshore wind turbine is the most competitive product in its segment, featuring optimal levelised cost of energy for medium and high winds, rotor diameter of 132 meters, a flexible power rating of 3.3-3.75 MW depending on the project requirements, and low risk based on proven technologies and enhanced performance with the highest levels of reliability,” Siqueira added.

The project will add 94 MW of power to the 247.45 MW produced by Brennand Energia, a company owned by the same family group, at eight wind farms in the city of Sento Sé. 

Recently, we reported that Siemens Gamesa had secured an order to supply seven SG 4.5-145 for No. 5 Thanh Hai 1 wind farm, its first nearshore project in Vietnam located between 2 km and 5 km off the coast. Conditionally, Siemens Gamesa will supply seven more SG 4.5-145 for the second phase of the project. The 60MW No. 5 Thanh Hai1&2 wind farms will be located in Thanh Hai commune, Ben Tre province.
