Vestas to deliver turbines to Latin America’s largest wind farm

Danish wind giant Vestas has confirmed that it will be delivering 396 megawatts' worth of turbines for the largest wind energy project in Latin America by the second quarter.

Vestas said it's delivering 132 units of their 3-MW "V90" wind turbines to the Mare~na Renovables project in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in the state of Oaxaca, southern Mexico.

The Mare~na Renovables project recently announced that it was ready to begin construction after garnering $682 million in funding from a syndicate of commercial and development banks.

The project, owned by a consortium composed of the Macquarie Mexican Infrastructure Fund, Mitsubishi Corporation and Dutch pension fund PGGM, expects completion by July 2012.

The entire project is estimated to cost around $1 billion and will be the largest in the region.

Under the terms of a turnkey contract, Vestas will provide the entire range of services to build the wind farm. This includes civil and electrical works, supply, installation and commissioning and related systems, along with service and maintenance for 10 years.

Power from the project will be bought by Cuauht'emoc Moctezuma, a company of global brewer Heineken N.V., and subsidiaries of Fomento Econ'omico Mexicano, S.A.B. de C.V. under a 20-year power purchase agreement. – EcoSeed Staff
