The number of turbines installed by Gamesa in Brazil reaches the 1,000 mark

Gamesa has achieved a new milestone, having installed 1,000 wind turbines since it entered this market six years ago.

These turbines, which imply total installed capacity of 2 GW, are sufficient to cover the electricity demands of a city the size of Munich (Germany), while also preventing the emission of around three million tonnes of CO2 each year (equivalent to the amount produced by one million cars in one year).

This record was attained after the Campo dos Ventos and São Benedito wind complexes, operated by CPFL Renováveis, were commissioned.

“Lifting our installed capacity to 2 GW is an important achievement which endorses the Gamesa way of doing things. We are proud to notch up successes like this together with our customers and to contribute in parallel to the growth of wind power in Brazil, a market with a huge potential which has set itself the goal of increasing installed capacity to 18 GW in 2019”, said Edgard Corrochano, Director of Gamesa Brazil.
