Large wind-power order won

- Advertisment -

Vestas has secured a 168 MW order for a wind park in Mexico. The order derives from a corporate power purchase agreement (PPA) and includes the supply and installation of 42 wind turbines of the 4 MW platform with V150 rotors. The order also includes service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind park over the next five years. The 73 m long blades of the 150 m rotors will be locally manufactured in the TPI Composites factory in Matamoros, which provides the company with blades for the increasing number of V136 and V150 orders the company is receiving in Mexico and Latin America. The turbine towers will also be produced by local suppliers. The company pioneered the Mexican wind energy market when it installed the first commercial wind turbine in 1994. Since then, it has accumulated over 2,3 GW of installed capacity or under construction in the country.
