Honduran wind project creates 200 US jobs

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Two hundred Pennsylvanian workers will assemble twelve high-tech wind turbines for export, because the Export-Import Bank of the United States approved a $28.6 million direct loan to a Honduran power company.

The transaction helps to expand a project first supported by the bank in 2010, when its long-term financing of 51 US-built turbine generators established the Cerro de Hula Wind Farm in Santa Ana, Honduras.

he project developer and borrower, Energía Eólica de Honduras, will sell the electricity to the Central American nation's utility, Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica.
