Order Signed for Mexico's Largest Wind Park

"Mexico is undergoing a historical moment in its energy policy and we are extremely pleased to play an active role in this process. By building Mexico's largest wind park with Vestas' turbines, we are taking a bold step in the country's transition towards renewables," said Adrián Katzew, CEO of Zuma Energía.

Vestas, a major manufacturer of wind turbines, announced Aug. 15 it has received an order from Zuma Energía for the largest wind park in Mexico. The Reynosa III project will be built in Tamaulipas and be home to 123 of the company's V136-3.45 MW turbines equipped with blades 66.7 meters long. Total power output will be 424 MW, according to the company's release.

The contract includes supply, installation, and commissioning of the wind turbines and a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 service agreement. Delivery of the wind turbines is expected to begin in late 2017 with commissioning expected in 2018.

It is a firm and unconditional order for the Parque Eólico Reynosa, which will be Mexico's largest wind park and one of the largest wind power projects in Latin America. Established in 2014, Zuma Energía is a leading Mexican player within renewable energy financially backed by Actis and Mesoamerica, which have a successful track record of building large renewable energy operations across the Americas and Europe, Vestas announced.

"Mexico is undergoing a historical moment in its energy policy and we are extremely pleased to play an active role in this process. By building Mexico's largest wind park with Vestas' turbines, we are taking a bold step in the country's transition towards renewables," said Adrián Katzew, CEO of Zuma Energía.

"Tamaulipas has a leading position in the country within wind energy, and we are proud to be part of this by installing the Reynosa project. The blades for V136-3.45 MW projects in Latin America will be produced in Mexico, which underlines our long-term localisation strategy in Mexico and Vestas' strong commitment to support Mexico' renewable target of 35 percent of clean energy by 2024," added Angélica Ruiz Celis, Vestas' managing director for Mexico and northern Latin America.
