Siemens Financial Services invests in Thermion’s Delaro wind farm, helping support Mexico's energy transition while preserving the environment for future generations and lessen its dependency on fossil fuel generation.
The second largest wind power market in Latin America, Mexico has an installed capacity of 6,600 MW and strong growth potential for the future. Wind power currently contributes around 6% of the country’s electricity needs, or the equivalent energy supply required by 6 million Mexicans.
Thermion – a private Mexican independent power generation company – is developing the 117-megawatt (MW) Delaro wind project located in the Northern region of Reynosa, Tamaulipas in Mexico. When complete, the project will provide the equivalent of enough energy to supply 64,634 houses reducing CO2 emissions equal to planting 22.8 million trees and generate more than 400 jobs where almost 40% will be filled by local citizens.
Siemens Financial Services (SFS) is investing, alongside Thermion, in the wind farm, participating not only with capital, but with the expertise to see the project through to completion.
