GE has announced the construction of two service centers focused on the operation and maintenance of wind turbines in Brazil. The support centers will be staffed by GE technicians and engineers at wind farms operated by Casa dos Ventos and other clients at Chapada do Araripe (PI and PE) and in Garanhuns (PE).
GE and Casa dos Ventos now have three wind farm clusters under construction. One of these is the Tianguá Cluster, in the state of Ceará, which has 77 GE 1.6-100 wind turbines, with delivery scheduled for the second half of 2015. The other two wind farm clusters are underway at the Garanhuns region, in the state of Pernambuco, which will have 233 GE 1.7-100 wind turbines, bringing 107 turbines to the Santa Brígida Cluster, presently in the installation phase, and the remaining 126 turbines to the São Clemente Cluster.
