The test bench, located in our Macaiba-RN facilities and with the capacity to run tests of up to 2.6 MW, is the largest in Brazil, dedicated exclusively to the wind industry.
On March 21, we announced that our company, ABS Wind Brasil, had successfully completed its first full load test of a repaired wind gearbox for a 2 MW platform. On May 31, 2022, finally, thanks to a titanic effort of our entire abs wind brasil team, we are proud and happy to have officially inaugurated our workshop together with customers, suppliers, and other friends linked to the Brazilian wind energy and industrial sector. We appreciate their interest and encouragement throughout the process. The test bench, located in our Macaiba-RN facilities and with the capacity to run tests of up to 2.6 MW, is the largest capacity in the country dedicated exclusively to supporting the wind industry. We would also like to express our gratitude to local authorities Emidio Junior, mayor of Macaiba, and Hugo Alexander Meneses Fonseca, coordinator of energy development at the Rio Grande State Secretariat.
We launched an open invitation to customers and suppliers interested in learning more about this mega-installation for the repair and maintenance of wind turbines, the only one of its capabilities in LATAM. More information about this event and all the news about our activity for the Brazilian wind industry will be coming soon. For further information, don’t hesitate to contact our director in Brazil, David Zanella.
