Spain-based wind developer Acciona says it has completed the construction of three wind farms in Mexico totaling 306 MW.
The wind projects, located in the state of Oaxaca, represent an investment of over 450 million euros. They comprise 204 Acciona Windpower 1.5 MW turbines and will produce the electricity equivalent to the consumption of almost 600,000 Mexican homes.
The three wind parks – Oaxaca II, Oaxaca III and Oaxaca IV – each of which has a capacity of 102 MW, were awarded to Acciona in March 2010 in a public tender called by the Mexican Federal Electricity Commission. All of the turbines will be powered up and connected to the grid by December.
