Jointly developed by Cemex and Fisterra Energy, the US$640mn Ventika project in Mexico’s Nuevo León state calls for the construction and operation of two 126MW wind farms with total capacity of 252MW. Once completed, it will be the country’s largest onshore wind farm.
Works include the installation of 84 Acciona AW-3000 wind turbine generators, each with a hub height of 120m and a nominal output of 3MW per turbine.
The project includes the construction of a 230kV substation with two 34.5kV/230kV main power transformers and 14Km of 2X230kV transmission lines that will feed Mexico's national grid.
The construction phase is slated to be completed by mid-2016. It is expected to generate 1,000 direct jobs and over 2,000 positions in related industries.
