The Export-Import Bank of the US (Ex-Im) will lend a Honduran wind farm operator $28.6m to help expand its operation with 12 Gamesa turbines.

Ex-Im will make the loan directly to Energía Eólica de Honduras, enabling it to add 24MW to its Cerro de Hula Wind Farm and bring the total capacity to 126MW.

The developer will buy six G87 and six G97 2MW turbines assembled at the Spanish wind group’s plant in Pennsylvania.

Ex-Im was an original backer of Cerro de Hula in 2010, when it was built at a site 22km south of Tegucigalpa.

The wind farm produces about 6% of Honduras’s power, says Ex-Im, selling the electricity to state utility Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica.
