Vestas has reached a deal with LM Wind Power to supply the Brazilian market. The company signed a supply agreement with blade manufacturer for the same.
It has been informed that the multi-year agreement includes "production of V150-4.2MW blades supplied from LM Wind Power's factory."
The factory is based at Ipojuca in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil.
According to the company, the project will add "local jobs, spur direct and in-direct investments in the Brazilian supply chain and expand Vestas’ global manufacturing setup.
Vestas chief operating officer Tommy Rahbek Nielsen commented, “This partnership is a good example of how we develop and expand the wind energy supply chain to drive the needed scale of renewables by increasing the use of standardised components and shared manufacturing operations between OEMs, thereby adopting a similar approach to the automotive industry."
LM Wind Power vice president of sales and marketing Dorte Kamper remarked, “Now more than ever, collaboration throughout the value chain is crucial for the wind industry to sustain a healthy growth and deliver on what an electrified and net-zero world needs from us."
Vestas said production is likely to start in late 2022.
