MADRID Dec 2 (Reuters) - Iberdrola has been awarded a contract to build and operate three wind farms in Brazil with a total 90 megawatt capacity alongside local partner Neoenergia, the Spanish renewable energy company said on Tuesday.

The firms will invest 150 million euros ($186 million) in the project, Iberdrola said in a statement, adding it would operate a total of 17 wind farms in Brazil once these are built.

Iberdrola owns 39 percent of Neoenergia and the two operate together as Forca Eolica do Brasil (FEB).
