Iberdrola to Build 50-Megawatt Grupo Terra Wind Farm in Honduras

Iberdrola SA (IBE), Spain’s largest wind-farm operator, agreed to build a 50-megawatt wind farm in Honduras.

The 62 million-euro ($84.4 million) project in San Marcos de Colon, 140 kilometers (87 miles) from the capital Tegucigalpa, will use 25 turbines from Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA, according to a statement on Iberdrola’s website yesterday.

The San Marcos wind farm will be owned by the Honduran developer Grupo Terra, and will produce enough power for about 100,000 homes.

Iberdrola completed last year the 100-megawatt Cerro de Hula wind farm in Honduras, the largest in Central America, according to the statement.
