    Default Caribbean Wind Park (Pecasa)

    As provided by DR1 Daily News of Thursday, 13 June 2019.....

    President Medina visits Montecristi for start up of Caribbean Wind Farms
    President Danilo Medina was in northwestern Montecristi for the symbolic start of operations of the Caribbean Wind Park (Pecasa). The Akuo Energy power plant has the capacity to generate 50MW. The wind farm will supply energy to 150,000 households in Montecristi province.

    As reported by the Presidency, the park features 25 wind turbines, model G114 (Siemens-Gamesa) with capacity to add 2 MW each to the public grid. They are interconnected via an underground 34.5 kV medium voltage network. This substation, located near the town of El Copey, raises the voltage to 138 kV where it is interconnected to the ETED substation. Power then flows to the interconnection point via a 14-kilometer high voltage line on the Navarrete-Montecristi transmission line.

    The government says that with this new project, the renewable energy generation component of the energy matrix is now at 351 MW.

    Akuo Energy is headquartered in Paris, France and has operations in 18 countries around the world. The power plant was financed by a US$80 million funding from the International Finance Corporation of the Canadian government.
