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 region’s largest drinks maker.

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

FEMSA’s turnkey project will cost around $400m and involve the installation of 132 V90 wind turbines – each with a 3 MW capacity.

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