Vestas seals wind power dominance in Latin America

Vestas of Denmark, a major wind turbine OEM, is set to become the largest manufacturer and operator of wind power capacity in the Latin American region.

This is thanks to a new 396 MW plant that will provide 85 per cent of its electricity to FEMSA, the regionࢀ™s largest drinks maker.

Adriàƒ¡n Katzew, Vestas director for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, told El Economista that for each megawatt generated via wind power $1m are invested.

FEMSAࢀ™s turnkey project will cost around $400m and involve the installation of 132 V90 wind turbines ࢀ“ each with a 3 MW capacity.

The wind farm will start operation during the first three months of 2014.
