German company expanding business in Central America

German project developer juwi opened an office in Costa Rica and will supervise construction of a 39.6 MW wind farm in Nicaragua.

Business activities will be coordinated from the new subsidiary, “juwi Energias Renovables – Centro America y el Caribe Ltda.,” where it will work with wind, solar and bioenergy projects.

The wind farm in Nicaragua will use 22 Vestas V100 turbines, each one with a capacity of 1.8 MW. It is expected to be connected to the grid by mid-2013. Most of the financing is coming from the Venezuelan government.

In Costa Rica, juwi is currently building the 15.3 MW Eolico Valle Central S.A. turnkey wind project. It is expected to begin operations by the end of 2012.
