EDF EN Mexico, a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles, has commissioned the 164 MW Bii Stinu wind farm.
The Bii Stinu project is located in Oaxaca, Mexico, where EDF EN Mexico already operates the 67.5 MW La Mata Ventosa wind farm. This new facility comprises 82 2-MW turbines from Gamesa. EDF EN Mexico and Mitsui & Co. Ltd., via its subsidiary MIT Renewables Mexico, jointly own the project.
A set of international and Mexican groups, including Arcelor Mittal Steel Lazaro Cardenas, Walmart Mexico, Grupo Modelo, Grupo Herdez and Continental Automotive Guadalajara, will buy the wind farm's output through 15-year power purchase agreements.
With the commissioning of this latest project, EDF Energies Nouvelles' installed capacity in Mexico now stands at 231.5 MW gross, with another 160 MW currently under construction.
