AES Brasil has commissioned the Nordex Group to supply and install N163/5.X turbines in Brazil. Following the 314 MW order for the Cajuína wind farm in June 2021, AES has now ordered a further 65 N163/5.X turbines with a total volume of 370 MW for the Cajuína 2 extension phase.
The order includes service for the turbines for an initial period of five years, with several options to extend up to 20 years. The turbines are due to be installed in summer 2022 and will be supplied in a project-specific operating mode of 5.7 MW. The Nordex Group will be manufacturing hubs, most parts of the nacelles, the 120 meter concrete towers and the rotor blades in Brazil.
