Vestas notches hat-trick of deals in less than a week
Danish wind turbine producer Vestas has signed three new deals in Poland, Turkey and Mexico over the past week.
The 99 MW deal for La Mesa and Ciudad Victoria wind power farms located in Tamaulipas, Mexico is the second order that Vestas has signed in Tamaulipas this month, in addition to the Tres Mesas project announcement on May 8.
“Only a few weeks ago, we received a 149 MW order for the Tres Mesas wind project, also to be located in Tamaulipas. With this new wind farm, Vestas strengthens its position in the Mexican market and confirms its commitment to developing the wind energy sector in this country,” said Marco Graziano, the president of Vestas Mediterranean.

Vestas initially secured an 83 MW order in Poland on Monday before agreeing to an 83 MW order in Turkey and Mexico two and three days later.
The deal in Poland is Vestas’s third announced order in the country so far this year, and the company now employs over 150 people in the country since establishing Vestas Poland some 12 years ago. Vestas has also been present in Turkey since 1984, over 30 years ago.
“Turkey’s power demand has significantly increased due to rapid economic growth and a larger population, so the Turkish wind energy sector is expected to become one of the largest wind power markets in the world,” Graziano said.
“Vestas is strongly committed to this market and we are pleased to contribute with our technologies and expertise to drive down the cost of energy in Turkey.”
