The SG 3.4-132 is one of the company’s newest and most efficient turbines; its blades stretch 65 meters long. Lastly, this contract will also help foster the local manufacturing base as the turbines will be made at Siemens Gamesa’s factory in Camaçari.

“We are very proud that Iberdrola has selected us for such an important endeavor,” said said José Antonio Miranda, CEO of Siemens Gamesa in the Americas. “It constitutes a milestone in the history of the Brazilian wind sector as it is one of the largest turbines contract ever placed in this market.”
