Elecnor has been awarded a contract for the construction of a 56 megawatt (MW) wind farm in Mexico for an amount of 32 million dollars (about 28.8 million euros), the company reported.
The infrastructure, energy, services and telecommunications group has been selected for this project by Eurus Energy, a Japanese company with a branch in San Diego and owned by Toyota and Tokyo Electric Power.
The Coromuel wind farm has a total investment estimated at 100 million dollars (about 84.37 million euros), of which Eurus Energy will finance 50% and the Development Bank of Japan will provide the other half.
The project will be located in the Baja California Sur desert, about 40 kilometers from La Paz, the capital of the region. Twenty 2.8 MW General Electric wind turbines will be installed and 20 kilometers of roads and more than 20 kilometers of overhead and underground medium voltage networks will be built.
The contract also includes the construction of two 115 kilovolt (kV) electrical substations and the installation of 120 kilometers of lines to connect the high voltage towers (OPWG).
