 Acciona Windpower opens wind tower production facility in Mexico

Acciona Windpower, a subsidiary of Acciona Group, completed construction on a concrete wind tower production facility in Mexico.
 
The plant produces concrete segments for the wind turbine towers in the 252-MW Ventika and Ventika II wild farms in Nuevo León. Acciona is installing the wind farms for a development company consisting of Fisterra Energy, Cemex and other private investors. Total investment is around $650 million.
 
The two wind projects will use 84, 3-MW Acciona Windpower turbines. Acciona will perform the operation and maintenance of the projects for 15 years after they begin service, which is scheduled for mid-2016.
 
Acciona is building wind turbines for the Ventika and Ventika II projects, along with the 49.5-MW wind farm for Actis and Comexhidro in Oaxaca, and the 1.5-MW wind turbine installed in 2010 for CFE in Cancun.
