IEnova CEO Tania Ortiz said: “At Energía Sierra Juárez, we are pleased to partner with Vestas on sustainable energy solutions.

“This project reinforces our commitment to developing energy infrastructure that promotes Mexico’s growth and development and to continue positioning ourselves as a leading clean energy generation company in the country”.

According to the contract, the company will supply, transport, install and commission 26 of its V150-4.2MW wind turbines at the wind farm site in Tecate, Baja California.

Vestas México general manager Agustín Sánchez-Tembleque said: “I would like to thank Energía Sierra Juárez for placing their trust in Vestas again in this second phase of the existing 155MW wind park.

“This important 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 in the country.”

In addition, Vestas will also service and maintain the wind park by signing a 15-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.

The Danish company expects to deliver the wind turbines by the third quarter of the year and the commissioning is planned for the second quarter of 2021.

Once operational, the clean energy generated by the wind facility will be sold to a utility company San Diego Gas & Electric.
