The French multinational company Quadran International has through its subsidiary Quadran Brasil, placed an order for the 206 MW Serrote wind park to be located at the municipality of Trairí, in the state of Ceará. The contract includes the supply and installation of 49 V150-4,2 MW wind turbines with a 125-meter hub height. The power from Serrote wind park will be supplied to the Brazilian utility CEMIG through a PPA agreement with Quadran. Turbine delivery is expected to commence in 2020 and commissioning is planned for 2021. The order is Vestas’ first project in the state of Ceará, where the company’s Brazilian V150-4,2 MW nacelles factory is located. Serrote wind park’s 49 nacelles as well as the wind park’s blades and towers will be locally produced under the Brazilian Development Bank’s rules.
