This is the second contract with Enerplan, which also ordered 10 units last year for the first wind farm of Pontal project. The equipment will be installed in Viamão, city of Rio Grande do Sul State. The commissioning of the project is scheduled by end 2015.
With the two contracts combined, Alstom will supply 18 units of ECO 122 wind turbines, generating 2.7 MW each.

The ECO 122 wind turbine has the biggest rotor diameter within the 2 MW to 3 MW onshore turbine segment. It combines high power and high capacity factor[2] to boost energy yield in low wind regions, and thus fits perfectly with the Brazilian wind conditions.

The nacelles of the wind turbines will be manufactured at Alstom's plant in Bahia State and the towers will be produced at Alstom’s new facility in Canoas. Alstom (alstom.com) will also be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the wind turbines for five years.

Yves Rannou, Alstom Senior Vice President of the Wind business stated: “Alstom is prepared to support the continuous growth of Brazil’s wind market with the ECO 100 platform, amongst the most proven multi-megawatt platforms in the market place thanks to the “Power of 3™”, three different wind turbine solutions fitted to specific conditions”.

The ECO 122 is the latest evolution of Alstom’s proven ECO 100 turbine platform, and the result of more than 30 years of experience in wind turbine design.

The ECO 100 platform now has more than 2,000 MW installed or under construction worldwide and over 200,000 cumulative operating hours since 2008. All Alstom wind turbines are based upon the unique and proven Alstom Pure Torque® rotor support concept that protects the drive train from deflection loads, ensuring higher reliability and lower maintenance costs.

[1] The contract was booked during second quarter of the fiscal year 2014-15.
[2] Capacity factor is the ratio of the actual energy produced in a year, to the theoretical maximum possible if the turbine is running full time at full power output.
