Spanish energy company Gas Natural Fenosa has started construction of a wind farm in Mexico, which is its first such project in the Latin American region.

Once completed in 2014, the wind farm will have an installed capacity of 234 MW and produce up to 750 GWh per year, according to Revista Eolica y del Vehículo Electrico.

This makes it the third largest wind project under construction in the region.

The project, which is located in Oaxaca, reportedly represents an investment of EUR300m ($396m).

Gas Natural Fenosa currently operates a power generation fleet totaling 2580 MW in the Latin American region.
