ACCIONA Windpower will supply 43 of its 3 MW wind turbines for a 129 MW wind farm, located in Mexico.
Per the contract, ACCIONA will supply its AWS/3000 wind turbine, which is designed to optimize the capture of energy on sites with medium-speed winds. The turbines will be mounted on steel towers.
ACCIONA has now sold 988.5 MW in Mexico.
‘We are very pleased to continue increasing our order portfolio in Mexico with new customers, and this confirms the growing interest of the wind power sector in our AW 3000 turbine,’ says Jose Luis Blanco, CEO at ACCIONA Windpower.
The company is currently supplying Mexican customers with 3 MW turbines totaling 252 MW for two wind farms in Nuevo Leon and has another order for 1.5 MW machines at a 49.5 MW facility in Oaxaca.
The contract pushes ACCIONA Windpower's global order book to 6.5 GW – of which, nearly 40% call for 3 MW machines.
