Spain’s Iberdrola Energia and Gamesa have signed an agreement with Grupo Terra of Honduras to build the San Marcos wind farm on a turnkey basis at a cost of EUR62m ($84m).
The San Marcos wind farm will have a capacity of 50 MW and is to be located in the municipality of San Marcos de Colon, 140 km south of the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa and close to the border with Nicaragua.
Iberdrola’s subsidiary will be in charge of the engineering, procurement, construction and start-up of the wind farm.
It will also build a substation and a 40 km power line to connect San Marcos to the grid.
Gamesa will deliver 25 of its G90 wind turbines, which has a unit power of 2 MW.
This latest project sees Iberdrola strengthening its foothold in the wind power market in Honduras. Last year, it commissioned the 100 MW Cerro de Hula, currently the biggest wind farm in Central America.
