We attended Expo Eléctrica InternacionalIn June we participated in the annual Mexico Expo Eléctrica Internacional fair where we offered our technology, products and services designed for all the market segments, including electrical energy distributors, renewable energy project developers, constructors, installers and private customers.
In this way we reinforce our local presence in Mexico, a key country for Ormazabal, where we have been present since 1999, when we introduced a technology that was almost non-existent in this country: fully gas-insulated medium-voltage switchgear. We quickly participated in several wind power projects and projects for the electrical distribution company, Valle de México, making us the lead supplier for this technology. Therefore in 2012 we set up the subsidiary Ormazabal México from which, in our head office in Mexico City, we offer our array of products and services more closely and quickly.
Our experience has resulted in the installation of over 5,000 medium-voltage units in Mexico. The fact that our main products are approved by the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) and by the major utilities in the region has enabled us to participate in a multitude of projects, both in distribution networks and in high-voltage / medium-voltage substations. Today, we are a major player in renewable generation projects, where we have supplied switchgear as well as protection and control units to more than 50% of the installed wind power capacity.
