GE has announced that the 22 MW Santa Catarina wind farm is now online in Mexico. The project features eight GE 2.75-103 turbines, and the company expects the wind farm to generate 45 GW of power annually.

The Santa Catarina wind farm is a result of a joint effort between Comexhidro Viento, Next Energy de Mexico and Conduit Capital, which will use the wind farm to supply energy to six counties: Santa Catarina, Monterrey, Apodaca, Escobedo, Nicolas de los Garza and Los Ramones.

GE has a five-year agreement to operate and maintain the wind farm.
