Gamesa and Iberdrola Ingeniería to build wind farms in Costa Rica

Gamesa and Iberdrola Ingeniería have signed an EPC contract with Globeleq Mesoamerica Energy (GME) to build four wind farms with a total capacity of 80 MW in Costa Rica.

The two companies will handle all the construction and commissioning phases required for this project, named Alisios, which comprises four 20-MW wind farms: Vientos de la Perla and Vientos de Miramar, located in the Liberia region, and Altamira and Campos Azules, to be developed in the Tilarán region.

Specifically, 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 2016, while Iberdrola will handle the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) side of this renewable facility, which is due for commissioning towards the end of next year.

Alisios is set to have a very significant impact on its surroundings as it will be able to cater to demand for electricity from some 60,000 Costa Rican households and create around 400 jobs during the construction process. In addition, Alisios will prevent the emission of around 172,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.
