Enel Green Power (EGP) says it is continuing to grow its presence in Latin America, with the company building two new wind projects in Mexico and Uruguay totaling 150 MW of capacity and $270 million of investment.
EGP says it is building a new 100 MW wind facility in the area of San Luis de Potosi, Mexico, where the company notes it also completing and preparing to put into service the 100 MW Dominica 1 wind project.
"Mexico is a rapidly growing nation, with positive population and industry dynamics," explains EGP's Maurizio Bezzeccheri. "Besides the Dominica 1 wind farm, we are completing the Sureste IÂ – Phase II facilities in the Oaxaca area, where we already manage 140 MW of wind power capacity."
In Uruguay, the company is also building the 50 MW Melowind wind farm. Bezzeccheri says the project offers "exceptional performance levels and a 47 percent capacity factor" and that this is only the first of many facilities that EGP will build in the country.
