The turbines, to be manufactured at Gamesa’s facility in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, are destined for the Orosi wind-farm project in Guanacaste province, Costa Rica.

The Ex-Im Bank determines, based on Departments of Commerce and Labor data and methodology, that the approval of the loan to Orosi will support around 200 jobs in the US.

The loan approval represents the bank’s first wind transaction in Costa Rica and fourth utility-scale wind project overall.

Ex-Im Bank chairman and president Fred Hochberg said the bank continues to support renewable-energy projects that improve its environment and showcase American innovation.

"Our financing will help Gamesa expand their export of renewable energy technology and in the process support U.S. jobs throughout the wind industry," added Hochberg.
