The projects will be developed over the next two to four years at a cost of around $4.5 billion, according to Xuji. Santa Catarina, a sister state of Henan Province, has rich wind power resources.

Xuji Wind Power did not disclose the exact timetable of the project.

A ceremony was held on December 10 in Xuchang, central China’s Henan Province, to mark the deal between Xuji and the Brazilian state.

Xuji Group president Li Fusheng said the agreement represents the company’s progress in its efforts to tap into the overseas market.

In September last year Xuji began producing 2 MW wind turbines with standard double-fed induction generators. The machine design is licensed from electronics supplier AMSC Windtec.

Xuji has an annual production of 1,000 units.
