Spanish energy company Acciona has unveiled plans to build the 49MW Chiripa wind park in Costa Rica with an investment of $125m.

The wind farm will be made up of 33 Acciona wind turbine generators, each with a capacity of 1.5MW. The company will be responsible for the design, construction and operation of the park.

The company secured the contract by the Instituto Costarricense de Energía (ICE), to which Acciona will sell the energy produced over a 20-year period.

Construction on the wind park will start next year and the farm is expected to be operational by 2013.

Once connected, the park will produce an average of more than 200 million kilowatts an hour of energy a year.
