Vestas, the world’s largest wind turbine maker, has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) deal for the 108 MW Energia Sierra Juarez II wind park in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico.
The contract includes the supply, transport, installation and commissioning of 26 V150-4.2 MW of which some are delivered on 4.0 MW operating mode.
Energia Sierra Juarez is a joint venture between IEnova, a Sempra Energy Company, one of the largest private energy companies in Mexico, and Saavi Energía, the third largest independent energy producer in the country.
The order also includes an Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind park over the next 15 years.
The energy produced by this project will be commercialised through a PPA contract with the utility San Diego Gas & Electric.
“This project underlines the competitiveness of wind energy in Mexico and our ability to provide the lowest cost of energy to our customers. It also showcases the value of Vestas’ local experience and proven ability to deliver site-specific solutions,” said Agustin Sanchez-Tembleque, general manager of Vestas Mexico.
Vestas will deliver turbine in the third quarter of 2020 whilst commissioning is planned for the second quarter of 2021.
Vestas has accumulated over 2.4 GW of installed capacity or under construction in Mexico.
