Leaders in the Mexican wind power industry
ACCIONA is a main actor in the Mexican renewable energy sector, with 1,144.5 MW operating in wind and photovoltaic and a large portfolio in construction and development. Additionally, it has installed more than 1,000 megawatts in wind for customers through its Energy and Industrial businesses.
In 2009 the company completed the assembly of the Eurus wind farm, a 250.5 MW installation consisting of 167 wind turbines of ACCIONA Windpower technology. Located in the state of Oaxaca, Eurus is a self-supply project undertaken together with the cement company Cemex. Two years later, the connection of a wind power complex of 306 MW was completed, made up of the Oaxaca II, III and IV wind farms, a project awarded under tender by the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). It has 204 AW1500 turbines.
ACCIONA was awarded the clean energy supply of 1,064 GWh in two long-term energy auctions organized by the National Energy Control Center (CENACE) of Mexico. As a result it has put into service a 183-MW wind farm in the state of Tamaulipas as well as a photovoltaic plant in Sonora -this one in partnership with Tuto Energy- which is one the largest in Latin America, with 405 MWp.
The company also developed its activity as a vendor of turnkey installations and services to third-party customers through the award of contracts for the engineering, construction and supply of wind turbines and the start-up of two wind farms with a total capacity of 252 MW in the state of Nuevo León, which were completed in 2016. A similar contract was signed to build a 49.5 MW wind farm in Oaxaca, which entered service in late 2015. This business line is currently dealt by the ACCIONA's Infrastructure Division, which was commissioned by Mexican energy company Zuma Energía to build a 424 MW wind farm in Reynosa, in the state of Tamaulipas, among other projects.
