"This is the company's largest wind farm in Latin America and the Caribbean," says Juan Araluce, Vestas Mediterranean president. Under the deal with Mexican construction company Dragados Proyectos Industriales, which is building the project, Vestas will supply, install and commission the 2 MW machines and provide maintenance for them under a ten-year service contract. The turbines will be installed in the first half of next year, with project completion due by December 2010. "This is the first large order in Mexico, but we expect others in the future," says Emilia Sedran, marketing coordinator for Vestas in Latin America and the Caribbean. "Vestas considers Mexico as a key market in Latin America and the Caribbean."
