The Barra dos Coqueiros wind farm is scheduled for commissioning in July 2012.

Lecheng Li, Senior Vice President of Sinovel Wind Group, says: “This deal is a good beginning for both Sinovel and Desenvix. It strengthens the green energy presence of Desenvix and opens the door for Sinovel to the Latin American market. With the successful model of the Barra dos Coqueiros wind farm, the whole market is now aware that the wind farm solution from China is not only attractive but feasible.”
