Compañía Eólica Vicente Guerrero SA de CV has placed a 118 MW order with Vestas for the Vicente Guerrero wind park in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico.
Vestas says the order derives from a private power purchase agreement and comprises the supply and installation of six V136-3.45 and 27 V136-3.45 MW units of the same model delivered in 3.6 MW power-optimized mode. The project management will be executed by Servicios y Desarrollos Energéticos S.A. de C.V. and Inver Management.
The contract takes Vestas’ order intake in Mexico in 2017 to more than 700 MW.
“I am proud to witness firsthand how Mexico is betting on the promotion of renewable energy,” says Angélica Ruiz Celis, Vestas’ managing director for Mexico and northern Latin America. “In just a few years, the country has made incredible progress, becoming an example for other countries in Latin America. With our strong presence in the country and our long-term localization plan, Vestas is very well-positioned to continue supporting Mexico’s transition towards a greener economy.”
The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management service agreement (AOM 4000). Delivery of the wind turbines is expected for the third quarter of 2018, and commissioning is planned for the first quarter of 2019.
