Gamesa has signed a contract to build, deliver and install a 50 MW wind farm as a turnkey project for Globeleq Mesoamerica Energy (GME) in Costa Rica.
Gamesa will install 25 of its G87-2.0 MW wind turbines at the Orosi wind farm, financed by multilateral funding from the Export-Import Bank of the United States, the Dutch Development Bank and the International Bank of Costa Rica. Gamesa expects the wind farm to be finished between the end of 2014 and early 2015.
Pursuant to the agreement, Gamesa says it will also develop all necessary infrastructure for the project's installation and operation, including an electricity substation, a high-tension line and the site's connection to the power grid.
Furthermore, the company will carry out operations and maintenance services at the wind farm for a period of five years. For the third time, Gamesa will work with GME, after completing the Cerro de Hula project (116 MW) in Honduras and the Eolo wind farm (44 MW) in Nicaragua.
