Mexican steelmaker Deacero plans to use electricity from a greenfield wind farm project to run its operations, a media report from El Financiero said on Friday. Mexico’s energy regulator, CRE, granted Eolica Rio Bravo permission to build and operate a wind farm complex near Mendez, in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.

The wind farm will have a capacity of 66 megawatts (MW) and will supply energy for a number of companies, including Deacero, which will demand 32 MW, nearly half of the plant’s energy capacity.

The project will commence construction by July 2021, and the wind farm should start up by July 2024.

Ternium Mexico has registered within CRE to also get electricity from the same wind farm complex.
