The Group has been awarded a contract related to Detailed Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Pre-Commissioning and Commissioning activities for a Wind Project.
Covering an area of about 10,000 hectares, once completed, Amistad will be the largest wind farm in Mexico.
Once active, the entire wind farm will provide to 450,000 Mexican households with energy from renewable sources, avoiding emissions of around 435,000 tons of CO2 per year equal to those produced by more than 70,000 cars.
Construction phase involves more than 1,000 people at peak with a high impact in terms of local workforce employment.
As part of the project, the following activities have already been completed:
- over 135 km of internal roads have been realized
- 550,000 m3 of earth movement
- 4,000 tons of steel and 45,000 m3 of concrete used for wind turbine foundations
Conclusively, 90 km of HV overhead line will connect the plant to the grid, through a dedicated 230/138kV switching station of 90.000 m2.
