GE Renewable Energy has announced it has signed an agreement with ENGIE to supply 144 of its 2.5-116 turbines for the Umburanas wind farm complex in Bahia in Brazil.

Vikas Anand, general manager of GE’s Onshore Wind Business, Americas, comments: “Together, these two wind farms represent our largest volume of turbines in a single cluster in Brazil. This newly-announced project also demonstrates our continued commitment to Brazil’s wind industry.”

According to the renewable energy giant, GE’s 2.5-116 turbine for Umburanas will include 90-metre-tall towers. GE has revealed that the machine provides efficiency gains to the wind farm by maximizing energy production, reducing infrastructure spending and making for an even more competitive wind levelized cost of electricity (LCOE).
