The 33-turbine project will install Gamesa's 2MW G97 turbines and will be Iberdrola's fourth wind facility in Mexico.
The Pier II development was designed using a supercomputing system called Sedar, a high-resolution wind power simulation. It was developed by the Spanish utility with the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre.
According to Iberdrola, Sedar can calculate wind power output across the project's lifecycle and determine the best exact location for the turbines. The model can provide wind simulation at a high-resolution scale measured in square meters, rather than tens of square meters as in the case of other models. It also predicts stress and fatigue on turbines from turbulence and crosswinds.
Iberdrola said it expects to use the supercomputer programming to design all of its wind developments.
Once the project is commissioned, Iberdrola will have 296MW of wind capacity installed in Mexico, all of which has been supplied by Gamesa.
