Vestas to supply Latin America’s largest wind farm

Vestas has won an order to supply the Mareàƒ±a Renovables project in Mexico in what will be the largest wind energy installation in Latin America, totalling 396 MW.

Mareàƒ±a Renovables is owned by a consortium comprising the Macquarie Mexican Infrastructure Fund, Mitsubishi Corporation, and Dutch pension fund service provider, PGGM. Delivery of the turbines will start in the second quarter of 2012.

“This is a very important milestone for Vestas, as we look to strengthen our leadership position in Latin America and globally,” said Juan Araluce, chief sales officer, Vestas Wind Systems A/S.à‚  “We are truly committed to the development of wind energy in Mexico and are extremely proud to bring a clean, competitive and predictable energy source to Mexico, while contributing to the creation of local high-quality jobs and competencies.”

The electricity generated by this wind power plant will be used to power part of the operations of Coca-Cola FEMSA, OXXO and Heineken NV in Mexico.
