Vestas has signed a new agreement with Casa dos Ventos for the 360 MW Babilônia project, located in the cities of Morro do Chapeu and Varzea Nova, in Bahia. As the fourth contract between the companies in just two years, the order takes the cooperation past the 1.5 GW mark and highlights Casa dos Ventos' position as Vestas' largest customer in Latin America and one of the largest investors in the development of wind projects in Brazil. The order includes 80 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in 4.5 MW Power Optimized Mode as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 service contract, optimising the energy production for the lifetime of the project.

Most of the project’s output will be used by Casa dos Ventos to supply corporate customers with renewable energy through corporate power purchase agreements, yet a portion will be dedicated to serve the regulated market as a result of the A-6 auction, held in 2019.

The delivery of wind turbines is planned for the second half of 2022, with commissioning scheduled for the second quarter of 2023.
