The ACCIONA Windpower group will be part of a joint venture with Atlantic Energias Renováveis and Actis in developing a 195MW wind farm in Brazil. This new contract will bring their sold capacity to 1,020MW of their AW3000 wind turbine since 2012 in Brazil alone.
 
The project will consist of 65 wind turbines (3M each) located in the north-eastern State of Piauí. ACCIONA will begin supplying the wind turbines for installation in 2017 with the completion of the project expected in 2018.
 
The large—scale wind turbines being supplied are the AW125/3000, which has a rotor diameter of 125m; designed to capture medium-level winds
 
ACCIONA Windpower’s Brasil Director Christiano Forman said, “We are very pleased with this new agreement with Atlantic, which highlights the confidence of major players in the Brazilian wind power sector in our turbine, and the suitability of our product to give the best response to the needs of wind power developers”.
 
The main components of ACCIONA wind turbines for this particular contract, will be manufactured in Brazil, with all other components bought in the country as well. National production of wind turbine parts are to comply with the BNDES (Brazilian National Development Bank) requirements in order to finance the wind turbine project.
 
More recently, ACCIONA has been in the news, having been awarded the electricity supply of 12 hospitals located in Madrid, Spain. The organization is experiencing incredible growth in many branches of its business.
 
ACCIONA Green Energy Developments Managing Director Santiago Gómez Ramos said:
 
“We are very pleased that the Region of Madrid has joined our portfolio of clean energy customers, an area where we already supply to other services such as Metro de Madrid and Canal de Isabel II Gestión”
 
“Contributing to the use of renewable electricity by hospitals in Madrid is also a positive step forward to creating a healthier environment for people to live in”.
