Transbiaga continues to strengthen its activity in Mexico with a new contract for the supply of 76 MW. Specifically, the company will install 36 wind turbines model G114-2.1 MW in the park Tizimín, located in the state of Yucatan, which will start operating in 2018.
It should be noted that a new foundation technique will be used, through the use of “jabalcones” (concrete base that resembles a pedestal). This solution, which is used when the park meets certain conditions, allows to increase the production of the turbines thanks to the increase in its bushing height of up to 5 meters. Thus, the overall Energy Cost of the project is reduced and a greater flexibility in the design is achieved to adapt to the characteristics of the land.
Mexico is one of the wind markets with the greatest growth potential at present. The electricity reform of 2015 establishes that 35% of electricity comes from renewable energies in 2024. Thus, forecasts indicate that it will be installed around 1 GW per year in the coming years.
