September 16 (Renewables Now) - Spanish infrastructure builder Elecnor SA (BME:ENO) has secured an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a 20-MW wind project that will be Colombia's second such facility.
The Spanish firm will construct the Guajira I wind farm for private electricity producer ISAGEN, the majority shareholder of which is BRE Colombia Hydro Investments Ltd.
To be located in the municipality of Uribia, La Guajira department, the wind farm will require an investment of EUR 31.7 million (USD 37.6m), Elecnor announced today. Guajira I will consist of ten 78-metre-high wind turbines supplied by Danish turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS), each with a 2-MW capacity.
This is the first contract the company receives in the Latin American country and it represents only the second wind park being developed in Colombia, following the commissioning of the Jepirachi facility in April 2004.
