Award for Cemex Eurus wind farm project

Acciona Energa has won the Infraestructura 360 prize awarded by the Inter-American Development Bank for the sustainability of its infrastructure projects implemented in the Latin America/Caribbean area.

The winning project was the Eurus wind farm, built and operated by Acciona Energa México as a self-supply project for Cemex.

The jury particularly highlighted its positive impact on the quality of life of the surrounding community. The award, granted in the population and leadership category, was selected by an international jury from among more than 40 projects from 10 countries.

The projects were evaluated using the infrastructure sustainability analysis methodology created by the Zofnass-Harvard Program of the Graduate School of Design of the North American university to analyze and quantify the sustainability of infrastructure projects in an objective way.According to the evaluation report, the Eurus project “has demonstrated excellent performance in the improvement of the quality of life of the community where it is located”.

The Eurus wind farm is at La Venta, in the municipality of Juchitn de Zaragoza in Oaxaca State (Mexico). It is one of the biggest wind farms in Latin America, with 250.5MW generated by 167 wind turbines of 1500kW each. It produces an average 989GWh of electric power a year, equivalent to the consumption of a city of 500,000 people, and avoids the emission of around 600,000t of CO2 per year.
