Grupo Mexico to invest $250 million US dollars to build a wind farm in Nuevo León

The company Invenergy will be responsible for developing this project with a production capacity of 168 megawatts, reported Grupo Mexico.

Grupo Mexico will make an investment, through its infrastructure division, of $250 million US dollars for the construction of a wind farm in the state of Nuevo Leon, northern Mexico.

The company stated that Invenergy, North America’s largest independent renewable energy company, will be responsible for developing this project.

The plant, which will supply clean energy to different industries, will have a production capacity of 168 megawatts (MW) of wind energy, generating more than 680 thousand megawatt-hours per year, having an interconnection with the National Electric System through the construction of a transmission line of more than 60 kilometers long, in the Reynosa area, in the state of Tamaulipas.

“The commercial operation of this wind farm, which will start in 2021, will transform more than 300,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere per year, which is equivalent to taking more than 60,000 motor vehicles out of circulation. This initiative reinforces Grupo Mexico’s commitment to society in caring for the environment,” explained the company.

In addition, this project will create more than 500 direct jobs and support the economic development of the region.

“Since 2014, Grupo Mexico has worked intensely in the development of clean and renewable energy projects, and promotes a connection with the local communities, in order to improve their quality of life and care for the environment,” added the firm’s statement.

With this project, Grupo Mexico will increase its electricity generation capacity to almost 800 MW, becoming one of the country’s main generators of energy.
