A Manitowoc 16000, fitted with a wind attachment, is helping to erect 204 turbine towers on a wind farm at La Ventosa, in Mexico's southern state of Oaxaca. A Manitowoc 18000, a Grove GMK5220 all-terrain crane and five Grove rough-terrain cranes are also on site.
The cranes all belong to contractor Sectrol DHP, which is working for main contractor Acciona. Sectrol DHP is erecting 68 towers in three locations in La Ventosa. When complete, the project is expected to generate approximately 306 MW of energy.
Sectrol DHP, which completed all of the civil work on the project, began work on the tower erection phase in March. The project is expected to be complete in August.
