The construction of the first wind park in El Salvador is progressing. In August, the installation of the first wind turbine of the project was completed, which will take advantage of the winds forcé to produce electricity.
The project is owned by Tracia Network Corporation and is developed by Guatemalan and Honduran investors and has not stopped despite the emergency represented by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The first components of the project were received in the Port of Acajutla in the first week of April by ship from China.
Ventus will have 15 wind turbines of 3.6 megawatts per each, bringing clean energy to thousands of Salvadoran homes. Ventus will provide clean energy equivalent to the consumption of 80,000 Salvadoran families.
The project has a total cost of $85.5 million for a syndicated loan in which Banco Agro Mercantil (BAM) of Guatemala (50%) and the local Davivienda and Cuscatlán participate.
