Gamesa Wind plant near Philadelphia will help power Honduras at Hula Hill
The president of Honduras visited a ridge called Hula Hill last month to break ground for a new electric plant that will use 51 wind-powered turbines made at the Gamesa Wind US plant near Philadelphia.
The site is supposed to produce 6 percent of the Central American nation's electric power when it goes on line next year.
Work at the plant, built by the Honduras arm of Costa Rica-based Mesoamerica Energy, was financed by a low-cost $159 million loan from the US Export-Import Bank.
