JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Alstom has been awarded a contract with ENEL Green Power Mexico for the supply and commissioning of 34 wind turbines at the new Sureste I–Stage II power generation plant in the Tehuantepec Isthmus, Oaxaca, Mexico.
The project, awarded to ENEL by the Federal Electricity Commission under the “external energy producer” scheme, is the first wind power project in Mexico for Alstom.The Sureste I, Stage II wind farm, which will be fully operational at the end of 2014, will generate more than 350 GW/h a year, equivalent to the total amount of energy used by more than 60,000 people, as well as reducing CO2 emissions by 238 metric tons a year. Mexico, which currently has installed wind power capacity of 1.4 GW, has established a target of 12 GW in wind power capacity by the year 2020.The farm will be equipped with 3MW wind turbines, from Alstom’s ECO 100 wind turbine platform. They incorporate Alstom Pure Torque technology, a rotor support concept that protects the drive train and other components from deflection loads. This ensures higher reliability and performance while reducing maintenance costs.Alstom has installed more than 2,500 turbines in over 150 wind farms around the world, supplying more than 4,000 MW of energy. Alstom designs and manufactures 1.67 to 6 megawatt onshore and offshore wind turbines, while providing solutions for all geographic and weather conditions.More information: www.alstom.com
