Envision commissions 90-MW wind park in Mexico

Envision's Peninsula Wind Farm in Yucatan

July 30 (Renewables Now) - Chinese wind turbine technology firm Envision Energy announced today the start of operation of the 90-MW Peninsula wind farm in Mexico's Yucatan state.

Consisting of 36 turbines, the wind farm was developed in partnership with Mexican firm Vive Energia and Spanish construction and engineering group ACS Actividades de Construccion y Servicios SA (BME:ACS).

The Peninsula wind park is expected to be able to supply more than 300 GWh annually to the Mexican grid, as established in the two power purchase agreements (PPAs) it won in Mexico's first and second renewable energy tenders.

Under a 10-year service agreement, the company is also providing smart monitoring and control, advanced predictive maintenance and on-site services. Envision offers similar services to the 70-MW Dzilam wind farm, located 50 km (31 miles) from the Peninsula plant.
