Vestas has received an order from Eléctrica Mexicana for supplying wind turbines for its upcoming 50.4MW Los Altos wind farm in Jalisco, Mexico.

The company will supply, install and commission 28 units of V100-1.8 MW turbines and associated SCADA systems to annually produce 180GWh of electricity.

The scope of work also includes a 10-year service and maintenance agreement on active output management (AOM) basis.

Vestas Wind Systems A/S chief sales officer and Vestas Mediterranean acting president Juan Araluce, commenting on the development said, "We are pleased to announce this new order which confirms our strategy in developing emerging markets with huge wind potential, such as Mexico, while at the same time we contribute to achieving the Mexican Government’s goals in reducing fossil fuel consumption and its level of carbon emissions."

Work on the project is expected to begin in the last quarter of 2012 with completion likely by mid 2013.

The wind farm help reduce emission of 79,200 tons of CO2 annually.
