ABB to implement STATCOM technology for Iberdrola’s wind project

The Mexican government has set an ambitious goal. It expects that by 2024, 35% of its energy needs will be fulfilled through renewable sources. As part of this objective, Iberdrola, the largest private electricity company in Mexico, is investing in its facilities with the goal of reaching 1,500 megawatts of renewable power by 2020.

In order to further enhance Iberdrola’s strategy, ABB is supporting Iberdrola by implementing STATCOM technology for the company’s most recent wind project.

ABB’s STATCOM technology will enable Iberdrola to comply with the strictest technical requirements of Mexico’s Codigo de Red. STATCOM technology also helps improve the capacity of transmission systems and contributes to the improvement of energy quality with more efficient and reliable networks.
