Vestas has received a 396 MW order for a 132 turbine wind farm in Mexico which would be the largest wind power project in Latin America.

The Marena Renovables wind farm will be built in southern Mexico and will be operated by Marena Renovables, a consortium comprising Macquarie Mexican Infrastructure Fund, Mitsubishi Corp, and PGGM, a Dutch pension fund service provider.

“Vestas is very proud to have been chosen by Mareña Renovables for the largest wind energy project in Latin America,” says

Juan Araluce, chief sales officer at Vestas Wind Systems said the turnkey contract was a “milestone” for the company and would give it the opportunity to strengthen its position in Latin America.
