Vestas inks 118 MW order for wind park in Tamaulipas
Vestas Wind Systems A/S, a Danish manufacturer of wind turbines, announced it has been awarded with a 118 MW order from Mexican company Compañía Eólica Vicente Guerrero SA de CV for the Vicente Guerrero wind park in the state of Tamaulipas.
The order derives from a private power purchase agreement (PPA) and comprises supply and installation of 6 V136-3.45 and 27 V136-3.45 MW units of the same model delivered in 3.6 MW Power Optimized Mode. The project management will be executed by Servicios y Desarrollos Energéticos S.A. de C.V. and Inver Management.
The contract takes Vestas’ order intake in Mexico in 2017 to more than 700 MW, including Mexico’s largest wind park. With close to a combined 1 GW of turbines either under construction or installed in Tamaulipas alone, the strong order intake in 2017 underlines Vestas’ strategic focus on the Mexican market, offering the latest technology and tailored-solutions to optimize the wind parks’ potential.
The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management service agreement (AOM 4000). Delivery of the wind turbines is expected for the third quarter of 2018 with commissioning planned for the first quarter of 2019. The financial terms of the deal remain undisclosed.
