Danish wind turbine maker Vestas has recently won a contract to supply 132 turbines for the 396 MW Marena Renovables project, which once built will be the largest wind farm in Latin America.
However, Adrian Ktzew, the company’s director for Mexico, Central American and the Caribbean, believes the wind potential in the country is greater.
The executive was quoted as saying that Mexico has come a long way in terms of wind power generation, particularly in the area of Oaxaca, but he also said the Latin American nation could easily double or even triple its current capacity.
Ktzew estimates Mexico has a potential to generate at least 10 000 MW from wind; while the government has set a target of 2500 MW in the Oaxaca region alone.
