Spanish renewable energy company Acciona has started commissioning for its 183MW El Cortijo wind farm in
Tamaulipas (Mexico), located 40km south of Reynosa.
The new wind farm is being built with an investment of nearly $235m and is reported to be the first to enter
service following the Energy reform in Mexico.
El Cortijo features 61 3MW wind turbines of Nordex Acciona Windpower technology. The turbines have a rotor
diameter of 125m and are built on 120m-high (hub height) concrete towers.
"The wind farm will have the capacity to generate electricity for 350,000 Mexican homes, and also avoid more
than 429,000t of CO2 emissions per year."
The company grid has connected the first wind turbines, which will continue until the commercial commissioning of the whole facility.
