The deal will see the Danish manufacturer deliver 86 V110-2MW turbines to the sites in Bahia, northern Brazil for an unnamed customer.

Turbines are due to arrive in Q2 2017 with project commissioning expected by the end of that year.

Vestas said the turbines would be manufactured in line with the BNDES (Brazilian development bank) guidelines for local content, which Vestas has recently been reaccredited to.

The guidelines, Finame II, requires 70% local content sourcing for hub, nacelle, tower and blade manufacturing. Finame II provides soft loans and tax breaks.

Vestas has recently inaugurated a hub and nacelle production facility in Ceara state, northeast Brazil, and has a partnership for producing blades and generators locally, the manufacturer said.
