Acciona Energía has put the 49.5MW Chiripa wind farm into commercial service, the company’s first in Costa Rica.

The installation, owned by a consortium in which Acciona holds 65% and local partner Grupo Ecoenergía the remaining 35%, represents a total investment of US$ 125 million. The power generated by the wind farm will be sold to the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) under a 20-year contract. The facility consists of thirty-three AW 77/1500 turbines. Each has a capacity of 1.5MW and a rotor diameter of 77 meters, mounted on 80-meter-high steel towers. The wind farm is located in the municipality of Tilarán (Guanacaste province) in north-west Costa Rica.
