Enel Green Power says it has won a public tender issued by the Mexican government for the construction of a 102 MW wind farm.

The wind farm, which Enel says will require an overall investment of about $130 million, will be located in the Mexican state of Oaxaca, an area known for its excellent wind resource. The tender also gives the company the right to enter into a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Mexican government's Comision Federal de Electricidad.

Enel Green Power has already installed 74 MW of wind energy capacity in Mexico and, including this recently announced project, has plans to develop at least another 200 MW.
