Representatives of the state-owned companies UTE, from Uruguay, and Eletrobras, from Brazil, visited Queiroz Galvão Energia’s projects
In the last week of July, Queiroz Galvão Energia organized a meeting with representatives of the Uruguayan state-owned company Administración Nacional de Usinas y Trasmisiones Eléctricas (UTE) and Eletrobras, the Brazilian government-owned corporation and Latin America’s biggest electricity company, with the objective of exchanging experiences related to operation and maintenance activities.
The gathering focused on the operation and maintenance of wind turbines produced by the Indian manufacturer Suzlon, seeing as UTE and Eletrobras, through SPE Rouar S.A, have put into operation the 65.1 MW Artilleros Wind Farm in Uruguay using wind turbines supplied by Suzlon and of the same model as those installed in QG Energia’s wind power complexes of Taíba and Icaraí (state of Ceará).
Queiroz Galvão Energia’s Implementation and O&M team – represented by Roberto Di Nardo, Technical Director; Maykel Pinto, Operation Manager; Ricardo Vicentini, Implementation Superintendent; José Urbano Almeida, O&M Superintendent; Cid Gomes Moura, Implementation Manager – organized the visit to the Wind Power Complexes of Icaraí and Taíba. They shared knowledge and experiences with the General Manager/Technician of SPE Rouar/Artilleros Wind Farm, Daniel Perez; the O&M Coordinator of SPE Rouar/Artilleros Wind Farm, Emanuel Cesán; and Eletrobras’s Engineer Eduardo Duarte.
