GE recently announced it has installed 300 wind turbines in Brazil. At the Brazil Windpower Conference, which took place in Rio de Janeiro last month, the company reported that it plans to install more than 600 additional units in Brazil over the next two years as it continues to grow in the region.

The company also announced plans to open two local service centers by 2014, representing a $1.5 million investment in Brazil. The service centers will reportedly employ more than 100 service technicians and be located in Rio Grande do Norte and Bahia.

Wind power is the fastest growing source of power generation in Brazil. The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) reports that the Brazilian wind sector installed 583 MW in 2011, bringing the country’s installed capacity up to more than 1,500 MW, an increase of 63%. The GWEC has identified Brazil as one of the world’s most promising onshore markets for wind energy for at least the next five years.
