Default Honduras gets large scale project underway



When you consider a country of the size, scale and power usage like the United States, one large scale wind energy project won’t go too far alone in fulfilling our energy needs. Head to Honduras however, and you’ll find out how one wind farm about to get under way is set to fulfill up to six percent of that nation’s power needs.

The 102-megawatt capacity Cero de Hula project, being developed by Energias Renovables de Mesoamerica S.A. (known as Mesoamerica Energy) through its locally owned entity, Energia Eolicas de Honduras, S.A. (EEHSA), is set for full commercial operation by early 2012. It is being built by the Gamesa Wind US LLC and Iberdrola Ingenieria y Construccion Mexico consortium, with financing provided by the Export-Import Bank of the United States and the Central American Bank for Economic Integration.

Cerro de Hula will be located around 10-1/2 miles south of Tegucigalpa, Honduras, in the municipalities of Santa Ana and San Buenaventura, with the greater project area taking up slightly over 16,000 acres. The wind plant will consist of 51 x 2 MW Gamesa G87 wind turbines and will supply the national utility company, Empresa Nacional de Energia Electrica under a 100 MW, 20-year power purchase agreement.

EEHSA is working towards registration of CdH as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project under the Kyoto Protocol.

“Cerro de Hula will be the first wind plant in Honduras and the largest wind plant in the Central American region,” said Mikael Karlsson, CEO of Globeleq, which has a majority ownership in Mesoamerica Energy. “It is a cornerstone for Globeleq and Mesoamerica Power (its regional partner), in our strategy to develop the leading renewable energy company in Central America.”
