“La Mata La Ventosa wind farm is located in southern Mexico in the Tehuantepec Isthmus, one of the best wind resources areas, and comprises 27 Clipper wind turbines”, explained Fabienne Demol Head of New Business Development at EDF Energies Nouvelles. “The electricity generated is entirely consumed by Walmart de México, with whom a 15-year electricity self supply agreement was signed. This project demonstrates our ability to develop competitive wind energy solutions.”
Developed and built by Eléctrica del Valle de Mexico, a company wholly owned by the EDF EN group, La Mata La Ventosa wind farm was commissioned earlier in 2010.
With operations in Europe and North America, EDF Energies Nouvelles is a market leader in green electricity production. With a development focused on wind power for several years and more recently on solar photovoltaic, the Group is also present in other segments of the renewable energies market: small hydro, marine energy, biomass, biofuel and biogas.
