Gamesa has recently finished completing the Bii Nee Stipa Wind Farm for Enel Green Power in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.
Centered within the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca, an area with high wind capacity of 40%, the wind farm will have a total installed wind capacity of 74 megawatts (MW), according to a statement provided by Gamesea. The release also said 37 G80-2.0 wind turbines will supply the 74 MW of wind energy.
The new Mexican wind farm could create 250 megawatts an hour (MWh) per year, while taking out 100,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from the atmosphere annually.
The recent completion of the Oaxaca wind farm will add to the already 100 MW of wind energy installed by Gamesa in the country, while another 70 MW are in the planning stages.
Currently, in Latin America, Gamesa has installed 540 MW of wind power.
