Vestas seals 424MW Mexican deal
Firm request placed for Parque Eólico Reynosa project
Vestas has received a firm order to provide 123 of its V136-3.45MW turbines (pictured) to Zuma Energía's 424MW Parque Eólico Reynosa project in the northeastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas.
The deal to supply the country's largest wind farm, first flagged last week, takes the Danish manufacturer's order intake from Mexico's energy auctions to almost 500MW.
Vestas will also install the project's wind turbines and has signed a 15-year output management service agreeement.
Turbine delivery is expected to begin late in 2017, ahead of commissioning in 2018.
Mexico wants to generate 35% of its power needs from renewable energy sources by 2024.
