The CNFL is waiting for new financially profitable, and concrete offers which adhere to the budget of the company in order to assess whether to reactivate the project. reports that “… Funding for the development of the park would have used financing from with a state bank, and its construction would have been completed in June 2017.

Victor Solis, chief of CNFL, added “… They are currently open to receiving offers from companies, provided that these are specific and fit in with the numbers sought by the Company. We have some land and permission to use it which we could exploit. What is lacking is a very specific proposal which guarantees profitability.”

The CNFL is in crisis: it closed 2014 with losses of ¢6.2 billion colones, so it cut some salary bonuses and other measures. However, the wholly owned Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) company, was forced to borrow ¢8 billion.
