Alstom has been awarded a contract with ENEL Green Power Mexico for the supply and commissioning of 34 wind turbines at the new Sureste I-Stage II power generation plant, located in the Tehuantepec Isthmus, Oaxaca, Mexico.

The project, awarded to ENEL by the Federal Electricity Commission under the "external energy producer" scheme, is the first wind power project in Mexico for Alstom.

The Sureste I-Stage II wind farm, which will be fully operational at the end of 2014, will generate more than 350 GWh annually. The installed capacity of wind power in Mexico is currently 1.4 GW, having established a target of 12 GW by 20201.

According to Alstom, the wind farm will be equipped with 3 MW wind turbines from the ECO 100 wind turbine platform. The turbines incorporate Alstom's rotor support technology that protects the drivetrain and other components from deflection load, ensuring higher reliability and performance while reducing maintenance costs.
