Under the contract Alstom will supply 57 ECO86 1.67MW turbines, which will be manufactured in both Spain and the company’s new Brazilian facility.
The ‘Brotas’ wind farm is due to come online in July 2011. The development will take the form of three different plants. The deal marks Alstom’s first Brazilian contract.
Desenvix is a subsidiary of engineering group Engevix, which has previously commissioned Alstom for a number of hydro-electric projects.
In December, Alstom signed a memorandum of intent with the government of Bahia to set up a wind turbine assembly facility with operations due to start in early 2011.
The company already has a presence in Brazil, employing around 4000 workers for its hydroelectric and construction projects.
