Danish wind turbine maker Vestas has won an order in Mexico for turbines with a total capacity of 396 megawatts (MW), which will be installed at the biggest wind power project in Latin America, the company said on Monday.

The order for the turbines, which will generate power for beer and Coca-Cola bottling in Mexico, lifted Vestas’s year-to-date announced orders to 865 MW, the company said on Monday. Vestas does not disclose the value of orders, but turbines usually cost around 1 million euros ($1.31 million) per megawatt of capacity.

Vestas Wind Systems A/S said in a statement the order for 132 of its V90-3.0 MW turbines was from the Marena Renovables project, a consortium of Macquarie Mexican Infrastructure Fund, Japanese conglomerate Mitsubishi Corporation and Dutch pension group PGGM.
