Iberdrola, Gamesa get Honduras EPC

Iberdrola has secured the EPC contract to build the 50MW San Marcos wind farm in Honduras in conjunction with compatriot Gamesa.

The Spanish energy giant’s Iberdrola Ingenieria subsidiary will handle EPC and start-up of the plant, as well as building a substation and 40km power line linking it to the grid.

San Marcos – sited 140km from capital Tegucigalpa and near the Nicaraguan border – will use 25 Gamesa G90 wind turbines.

The turnkey contract awarded to the two Spanish groups by plant owner Grupo Terra is worth €62m ($84.4m), said Iberdrola.

They previously worked together to deliver the 102MW Cerro de Hula wind project, also in Honduras.
