Acciona completes three wind parks in Mexico

This was revealed by the Managing Director of Acciona Energy Mexico, Miguel Ángel Alonso, during the International Wind PowerExpo 2011 Fair held in Zaragoza. Thus, Acciona – according to the company’s own indications – has installed a total of 556.5 MW of wind energy capacity in Mexico and has a market share of 65 %.

The three wind parks (Oaxaca II, III and IV), each with a capacity of 102 MW, were awarded to Acciona in March 2010 in a public tender called by the Mexican Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). Located in the region of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, the three wind parks have a total of 204 turbines of 1.5 MW. They will be powered up and gradually connected to the grid, a process that will take place from October to December this year.
