Wind farm

Grupo Terra will own the wind farm, which will be built in the municipality of San Marcos de Colón, 140km south of Tegucigalpa.

The wind farm will provide electricity for about 100,000 homes in Honduras and create around 200 jobs.

Iberdrola Ingenieria will handle engineering, procurement and construction as well as start-up of the wind farm.

The company will also construct an electrical substation and a 40km power line to upload electricity to the grid.

Gamesa will supply 25 of its 2MW G90 wind turbines with hub heights of 78m and a rotor diameter of 90m.

Iberdrola and Gamesa have previously worked together to deliver the Cerro de Hula wind project, also in Honduras.

Mesoamérica Energy owns the Cerro de Hula wind project, which is located about 24km south of Tegucigalpa, in the municipalities of San Buena Ventura and Santa Ana.
