Alstom will deliver 34 Eco 100 turbine for the Sureste I stage II wind farm in Oaxaca, southern Mexico. It is Alstom's first wind project in the country.

The project will come online at the end of 2014. Alstom said it will generate around 350 gigawatt hours a year, which is based on a wind speed of 8 m/s.

Last year, Mexico's wind market, with some of the strongest winds in the world, ramped up to adding around 600-700MW of new annual capacity.

This rate is predicted to last until 2015 and probably beyond, according to national wind association Amdee and the Global Wind Energy Council.
