Denmark-based wind blades and turbines producer Vestas plans to invest up to US$ 81 million to build a manufacturing plant in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, state officials announced.

The company plans to break ground sometime in the next two months to build a facility with two production lines scheduled to begin operations in the first half of 2018, but capacity could be expanded up to 10 lines over the next five years in order to meet demand.

The facility, located on a 13-hectare site, will initially be 48,000 square-meters. It will feature state-of-the-art tools and equipment to reliably and cost effectively serve wind markets via land, rail and by water from a port nearby. 

The amount of jobs involved in this project is still unknow but Francisco Javier Garcia, Governor of Tamaulipas, said it could be a thousand.
