Purchaser is Grupo Soluciones en Energias Renovables (GSEER), a Mexican wind energy developer.

With a total installed rated capacity of more than 160 MW, the Los Vergeles wind farm could be Mexico’s largest wind farm. The wind turbine order value exceeds US$270 million, Siemens Energy says.

The Siemens scope of supply includes delivery, installation and commissioning of the 70 wind turbines with a rated capacity of 2.3 MW each. In addition, Siemens will also execute its first five year operation and maintenance (O&M) agreement in the Americas for a wind project.

“The Latin America wind power market is expected to grow significantly in the years to come and the contract with GSEER marks Siemens’ entry into this exciting market,” says Andreas Nauen, CEO of the Siemens Wind Power Business Unit. “It is also the largest order for our new wind turbine to date.”

The wind turbine order for Mexico is the first order received by Siemens for wind turbines in the Latin America region.
