Enel Green Power has begun construction of its 102 MW Sureste I-Phase II wind farm. The plant, which is located in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, will comprise 34 wind turbines with a capacity of 3 MW each.
According to Enel, project construction will require a total investment of approximately $160 million. Last June, a company subsidiary signed a $100 million loan with the BBVA Bancomer Group, and part of the loan will be used to build the new plant.
Enel says it expects the new wind farm to enter service in the second half of 2014. Currently, the company has about 144 MW of installed wind capacity in Mexico.
