Mexico move for Siemens Gamesa
Order secured for 36 G114-2.1MW turbines for the Tizimín wind farm
Siemens Gamesa has won a contract to supply turbines to Fuerza y Energía Limpia de Tizimín for the 76MW Tizimín wind farm in Mexico.
A total of 36 G114-2.1MW turbines will be installed this year at the project in the state of Yucatán.
Tizimín is scheduled for commissioning in 2018.
The agreement also includes a five-year operation and maintenance contract.
Siemens Gamesa said it will use a new technique for the foundations involving braces – a concrete base akin to a plinth.
“This solution, deployable when a wind farm meets certain conditions, increases the turbines’ output by increasing the height of the hub by up to five metres,” the company said.
