Alstom wins contract for three Brazilian wind farms

Alstom has signed a contract worth approximately EUR200m ($$288m) to build and service three wind farms in Brazil for Brasventos SA.
The wind farms will be located in Rio Grande do Norte state, in the northeast of the country, and have a forecasted production of 580 000 MWh per year, enough to power more than 100 000 households and save more than 300 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
Brasventos is a special purpose company jointly-owned by J. Malucelli Energia (51 per cent), Eletrobras Eletronorte (24.5 per cent) and Eletrobras Furnas (24.5 per cent).
The scope of the order includes the supply, installation, commissioning and long-term servicing of Alstom's ECO 86 wind turbines, which will be manufactured in its new manufacturing plant in Bahia, Brazil.
