Gamesa signed a contract to build, deliver and install the 44 MW Eolo wind energy farm as a turnkey project in southwestern Nicaragua. The project will be owned by Eolo de Nicaragua S.A., which is owned by Globeleq Mesoamerica Energy (Wind) Limited.
Gamesa will install 22 of its G90 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 2 MW, which it will manufacture in Spain and the U.S. during 2012. Gamesa will also develop all necessary infrastructures for the project's construction and operation, including an electricity substation, a high-tension line and the site's connection to the power grid. It will carry out operation and maintenance (O&M) services at the wind farm for a period of 10 years.
For the second time, Gamesa will work with Globeleq after completing the 102 MW Cerro de Hula project in Honduras.
In addition to this deal, Gamesa has received a total of 236 MW of wind orders in Latin America since the beginning of 2012.
