Acciona Energy has won a deal to supply turbines to two Mexican wind farms totaling 252 MW. In addition, the company will serve as engineering, procurement and construction contractor and provide operations and maintenance for the projects for 20 years.

The turbine maker signed the contracts with a company formed by Fisterra Energy, a company majority owned by funds managed by Blackstone, CEMEX and private investors. The wind farms have completed financing, representing a $650 million investment.

The Ventika and Ventika II wind farms will be located in the state of Nuevo Leon and feature a total of 84 3-MW AW 116/3000 MW turbines. Construction is slated to begin in the second quarter of this year, and commercial operation is expected by the second quarter of 2016.

"We are very pleased to have signed this major contract that strengthens our position in Mexico, in this case as a service provider to customers in the development of renewable projects,” says Rafael Mateo, CEO of Acciona Energy.
