Dominican Republic´s 2nd major wind farm starts to come together
Pedernales, Dominican Republic.- The power company EGE Haina on Wednesday began receiving parts of the turbines for the Larimar wind farm being built at Enriquillo township, southwestern Barahona province.
The wind farm features 15 Vestas 84-meter high V112 turbines which can generate 3.3 MW each, for a total 50 megawatts.
The turbines´ components are arriving at Cabo Rojo Port from where they’ll be transported and installed at Enriquillo.
The new plant is expected to start operations in early 2016, which will double Dominican Republic´s wind generation.
EGE Haina said the nacelles, or the housing which holds the main components are already in the country.
After the Los Cocos-Quivio Cabrera park in nearby Juancho, Larimar will be the country´s second major wind farm.
