Gamesa has announced that it has entered Nicaragua's wind energy market by signing a new contract to build, deliver and install a 44 MW wind farm for Eolo de Nicaragua NA, which is owned by Globeleq Mesoamerica Energy (Wind) Ltd.
As NAW reported in April, Gamesa will install 22 of its G90 2 MA wind turbines for the Eolo wind project, which Globeleq acquired last month.
Pursuant to the agreement, Gamesa will also develop all of the necessary infrastructure for the project's construction and operation, including an electricity substation, a high-tension line and the site's connection to the power grid. The company will also carry out the operation and maintenance services at the wind farm for 10 years.
Gamesa will manufacture the wind turbines in the U.S. and Spain this year. The wind farm will be located in the town of Rivas on the shore of Lake Nicaragua in southwestern Nicaragua.
This is the second time Gamesa is working with Globeleq; the companies also collaborated on the 102 MW Cerro de Hula project in Honduras.
