ABB has won an order worth $32m from power producer Renova Energia to supply five new transformer substations and build overhead transmission lines to serve 14 wind farms with a total generating capacity of about 300MW in Brazil.

Under the contract, the company will design, engineer, supply, construct and commission the substations.

ABB will deliver five turnkey 34.5/69kV substations including 12 step-up power transformers rated at 33MVA, air and gas-insulated switchgear, medium-voltage reclosers, and distribution transformers.

The company will also supply and install 60km of 69kV overhead transmission lines to connect a 290MW wind farm to the national electricity grid that is currently under construction in the northeastern state of Bahia.

According to ABB, Brazil currently has around 600MW of wind power capacity, with another 450MW under construction.

The Brazilian Wind Energy Association aims to install 10GW wind energy projects by 2020.
