Important step for Mexican wind power

In what has been described as ‘an important milestone’ for Mexico’s wind power industry, Vestas has received an order for a total capacity of 50.4 MW consisting of 28 units of the V100-1.8 MW turbine for the Los Altos wind power plant.

The location of the project at Jalisco is seen as a significant move for the Mexican wind industry; as Los Altos wind power plant is the first large project to be installed outside the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, where the vast majority of the existing wind power plants in Mexico have been built until now.

The order has been placed by REM Regeneración Eléctrica Mexicana S.A. de C.V. - known as GRUPO DRAGON -, a Mexican company established for this purpose.
 
Delivery of the turbines is expected to start in Q4 2012 and the project is expected to be completed by Q2 2013.
