July 14 (Renewables Now) - The 54-MW Ventus wind farm, the first in El Salvador, has been successfully commissioned, project owner Tracia Network Corporation and consultancy ArcVera Renewables announced on Wednesday.
Tracia Network, a Guatemalan power plants operator, sponsored the project through its unit Ventus SA de CV. The company secured Ventus in El Salvador’s 2017 renewable energy auction and was the only one to be awarded a power supply contract for wind capacity.
ArcVera Renewables was with Tracia Network since the early days of the project development, before there was even a met tower at the site, the partners said in their joint press release. ArcVera applied its “high-resolution mesoscale/microscale modeling techniques”, the results of which were used to identify the best wind and terrain to help Tracia Network secure the project in the tender, the release reads.
