ACCIONA Energy began the installation of turbines in the wind park in July 2008, and connected them to the grid since February 2009. Following the completion of the assembly of the wind turbines, the entire facility will become operational over the next few weeks.

The power generated by Eurus wind park is equivalent to the consumption of a population of 500,000 and will avoid the emission of around 600,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere a year, which is around 25% of the total emissions of a city of this size. According to forecasts, this production could cover 25% of Cemex’s energy needs in Mexico.
