Vestas says that the 396 MW Marena Renovables project, for which it is supplying 132 V90 3 MW turbines, has been further delayed.
In May, the company announced a forbearance agreement with the project developers until Nov. 30. At the time, Vestas said that access to the project sites had continued ‘to be impacted by minority opposition groups, which have caused significant delays in the construction of the project.’ Vestas has now extended the forbearance agreement until Feb. 28, 2014, subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions.
The Marena Renovables project is located in the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca, Mexico. Marena Renovables is owned by a consortium comprising the Macquarie Mexican Infrastructure Fund, Mitsubishi Corp. and PGGM, a Dutch pension fund service provider.
