Turbine maker Gamesa reports that it has signed two agreements in Brazil for a total of 214 MW of installed capacity.

Gamesa will manufacture, supply, transport, install and commission 83 G97-2.0 MW wind turbines for several wind farms being developed by Companhia de Energias Renovaveis.

The turbine maker also landed a 48 MW contract to supply, install and commission 24 G114-2.0 MW turbines at a pair of wind farms with Eletrosul, a subsidiary of national power company Eletrobras.

Gamesa notes that the Eletrosul contract marks the first Brazilian order for the G114-2.0 MW turbine, a new model designed to yield more power at lower cost at low and medium wind speed sites. The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery during 2014.
