Enel secures 593MW in Mexico
Latest auction success will see four wind farms built by early 2020
Enel Rinnovabile has won the right to develop four wind farms totalling 593MW in Mexico in the Latin American country’s third electricity auction.
The largest project is the 244MW Dolores wind farm, which will be built in the municipality of China in the state of Nuevo León.
The other three are the Amistad II, III and IV projects, which will be located in Acuña in the northern state of Coahuila.
Amistad II and III will have capacity of 100MW each, while Amistad IV will be 149MW, Enel said.
All four plants are slated to come online in the first half of 2020.
Enel will invest about $700m in the wind farms, which will sell electricity to Mexico’s Cámara de Compensación over a 15-year period and related clean certificates for 20 years.
Enel Green Power head Antonio Cammisecra said: “We are thrilled about yet another great success in Mexico, a core market for us, and we are proud to confirm our leadership in the country’s renewables arena.”
