GE has announced that it has installed 300 wind turbines in Brazil. Over the next two years, GE will install more than 600 additional units in Brazil as it continues to grow in the region.

As the GE fleet expands, the company also is announcing its plans to open two local service centres by 2014, representing a US$1.5 million investment in Brazil. The service centres will employ more than 100 service technicians and be located in Rio Grande do Norte and Bahia. Designing a product specifically for Brazil’s wind speeds has been a key investment for the region, and GE has announced its 1.85-82.5 turbine, which is based on GE’s 1.5MW platform. GE’s 1.85-82.5 is designed to meet or exceed the historic 98.5 per cent availability of the 1.5MW platform and help improve project economics in higher wind regime sites by requiring fewer turbines per wind farm.
