Vestas has signed a framework agreement with the intention to produce V150-4.2 MW nacelles in the Brazilian state of Ceará. The new production setup continues Vestas’ presence in the state of Ceará, where it has previously manufactured V110-2.0 MW nacelles.
Vestas’ planned investments in the new production setup will total approximately € 23 million, with the prospect of generating 200 direct jobs and 800 indirect jobs. The new setup will provide Vestas’ customers access to financial support from the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES), which covers the acquisition of Brazilian-produced machinery and equipment. During the next months, Vestas will decide if the nacelle plant will remain in the municipality of Aquiraz, where it has assembled V110-2.0 MW nacelles, or another location in Ceará.
