The plant is expected to be completed late this year or early next, financed by multilateral funding from the Export-Import Bank of the United States (US Ex-Im Bank), the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the International Bank of Costa Rica (BICSA). The wind farm, in Guanacaste, is expected to be finished at the end of 2014- early 2015.
Work at the project will include substation installation and grid connection.
After completion Gamesa will provide O&M services for five years. The Spanish wind group has previously worked with Globeleq on projects in Honduras’ Cerro de Hula (126 MW) and Nicaragua’s Eolo wind farm (44 MW).
In Costa Rica, Gamesa has already installed 12,75 MW in the Los Santos wind farm.
