Acciona Windpower will supply 43 three-megawatt turbines – a total of 129 MW – to a renewable energy sector company for a wind farm in Mexico. With this contract, Acciona Windpower has now sold 988.5 MW in Mexico, of which 38% correspond to its 3-megawatt wind turbine.
The model selected for this contract is the AW125/3000 (rotor diameter 125 meters), designed to optimize the capture of energy on sites with medium-speed winds. The turbines will be mounted on steel towers.
The company is currently supplying Mexican customers with 3 MW turbines totaling 252 MW for two wind farms in Nuevo León, and has another order for 1.5 MW machines for a 49.5 MW wind farm in Oaxaca. Previously, Acciona Windpower produced 556.5 MW for Acciona projects and 1.5 MW for a CFE installation. The new contract means that Acciona Windpower has an order book for 6,525 MW, of which 2,412 MW (37%) are for its 3 MW wind turbine.
