Gamesa and Iberdrola Ingeniería have agreed with Globeleq Mesoamerica Energy to build 80 MW of wind power capacity in Costa Rica.

The two firms will handle all the construction and commissioning phases required for the project, which comprises four 20-MW wind farms. 

Gamesa will manufacture 19 of its G90-2.0 MW turbines and 21 of its G87-2.0 MW turbines for delivery during the second quarter of this year.

Separately, Iberdrola will handle the engineering, procurement and construction  side of the wind farms, which are due for commissioning towards the end of 2017.

The project is set to cater to demand for electricity from some 60,000 Costa Rican households.
