Vestas to supply 30 wind turbines for Mexican project

Vestas has secured a contract to install 30 wind turbines with the combined capacity to provide 54MW for a Mexican project.

The company will supply its V100 wind turbines with a 1.8MW generation capacity each. Additionally, Vestas will provide delivery, transportation as well as commissioning services as part of the contract.

The contract also encompasses the company’s proprietary VestasOnline Business SCADA system and a 15-year service and availability agreement.

Vestas expects to deliver the turbines in the second quarter of 2013 with the project scheduled to begin commercial operations during the first quarter of 2014.

Vestas Mexico and Caribbean general manager Adrian Corenstein remarked that this project reinforces the company’s presence in Mexico and further stated that Vestas will continue to assist the country’s energy mix expansion.

“We are pleased to supply 54 MW of new wind energy capacity to Mexico, thus supporting the country’s commitment towards the reduction of carbon emissions and fossil fuel consumption,” Corenstein said.

The company will release additional details about the project at a later date.
