The Danish company Vestas, a leader in wind energy, will install one of its plants in the municipality of Reynosa, in the state of Tamaulipas, an action that will generate new jobs and a substantial economic revenue for the entity, said Governor Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca.

He announced that the construction of the complex, which will be located in the west of Reynosa, will begin between August and December of this year.

Agreements were signed after the governor made a trip to Denmark, on July 11 and 12, to learn about the company's facilities, as well as its development center in the city of Aarhus and its production facilities in Ringkøbing.

"We have been impressed by Vestas' ability for innovation and productive strength. We are proud that the company will build its only production facility in the country in our state," said the governor.

During his visit, García Cabeza de Vaca explained to the managers of the transnational company the competitive advantages of Tamaulipas for the development of wind energy parks and also for the installation of a plant dedicated to the manufacture of the components of its generators, in this case, its last generation blades.

The V136 blades, currently the most advanced in the industry, will serve not only to meet local demand but also North America's.

He said that thanks to its natural resources, the state aims to become a national benchmark for energy reform, as well as a large contributor to achieving the goal of 25% clean energy by 2018 and 35% by 2024. "Our goal is to become the first Mexican state in wind generation," he said.

Angélica Ruiz Celis, the general manager of Vestas in the region, said that Tamaulipas's quality wind resources, infrastructure and attractive investment framework make the state a central point for this type of energy.
