Danish wind turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) on Tuesday unveiled a conditional agreement to equip Zuma Energia’s 443-MW Reynosa III wind farm in Mexico.
Under the contract, Vestas will deliver its V136-3.45 MW machines and will also take care of their installation and commissioning at a site in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas. Furthermore, the agreement includes a 15-year full-scope Active Output Management (AOM 5000) service deal.
The Danish turbine manufacturer explained that the project does not represent a firm and unconditional order yet. As soon as it turns into a firm deal, Vesas will make an official announcement, it said.
The Reynosa III project was awarded to Zuma Energia as part of Mexico’s renewable energy auction in September 2016. The North American country aims to source 50% of its total energy from renewables by 2050.
