Grupo Bimbo, a Mexico-based food company, has inaugurated the 90 MW Piedra Larga Wind Farm in Union Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Mexico.

The wind farm includes 45 2 MW wind turbines and will supply power to almost all of the company's facilities in Mexico.

Built by DEMEX, the Mexican affiliate of Spanish company Renovalia, Piedra Larga became a reality thanks to a strategic alliance between the private sector and some financial institutions, including Nacional Financiera, Banco Espirito Santo, La Caixa, Santander, Bancomext and Banobras (Fonadin).

The wind farm’s inauguration was attended by Mexico’s president, Felipe Calderon, as well as a handful of other federal, state and municipal authorities.
