Vestas has received an order to supply 45 V117-3.3 MW turbine for the Tres Mesas wind energy projects, located in Tamaulipas, Mexico.
The contract calls for the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a 10-year service agreement. Wind turbine delivery is expected during the first quarter of 2016.
According to Vestas, U.S. developer Oak Creek Energy Systems is developing the projects and will own them after project completion.
The projects are financed through loan agreements with Overseas Private Investment Corp. and North American Development Bank. Sigma Alimentos, a subsidiary of ALFA, and Walmart de Mexico have agreed to buy the power generated by the wind farm.
Vestas is no stranger to the Tamaulipas region. In 2013, the turbine maker also installed the 54 MW El Porvenir wind farm in the region, which is renowned for its abundant wind resources and transmission line availability.
