Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa has won a contract to build, deliver and install a 44MW wind farm in Eolo, Nicaragua, Central America.

Under the terms of the contract, Gamesa will install 22 units of its G90 wind turbines, each with capacity of 2MW, and develop all necessary infrastructures for the project's construction and operation, including an electricity substation, a high-tension line and the site's susbsequent connection to the power grid.

The company will oversee operation and maintenance services at the wind farm over a ten-year period and will manufacture the wind turbines in Spain and the US during 2012.

This is Gamesa's second project with wind farm owners Globeleq, following completion of the 102MW Cerro de Hula project in Honduras, Central America's largest wind farm.

Gamesa has received orders totaling 236MW in Latin America and Southern Cone countries since the beginning of the year.
