Installed in Canoas in Rio Grande do Sul State, South part of Brazil, the site will have the capacity to produce 120 steel towers per year, enough to supply approximately 350MW of electricity.
This factory will supply the southern region of Latin America. It is Alstom’s second wind manufacturing unit Latin America, following the commissioning of its first wind nacelle plant in Camaçari, State of Bahia, in November 2011. The new plant will employ 90 people and could generate an additional 250 indirect jobs in the region. The Canoas plant will produce towers dedicated to the Corredor do Senandes wind farm, the first wind project of Odebrecht Energia which will have 108MW of installed capacity.
