September 26 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has received an order to supply equipment for a 168-MW wind park in Mexico, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer said today.
Under the deal, which derives from a corporate power purchase agreement (PPA), Vestas will deliver and install 42 units of its 4-MW platform turbines with V150 rotors. The company will also provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services under a five-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) agreement.
The 73-metre (239.5-ft) blades for the project will be manufactured in Mexico, at TPI Composites Inc's (NASDAQ:TPIC) factory in Matamoro, Tamaulipas state. The turbine towers, meanwhile, will be produced by local suppliers.
Vestas has been active on the Mexican wind energy market in 1994 and since then has installed or has under construction over 2.3 GW of turbine capacity, it said.
