AMAYO II is the extension of the existing wind energy project AMAYO I in south-western Nicaragua. The wind farm is located close to the Pan-American Highway on the western shore of Lake Nicaragua, about 18km southeast of the city of Rivas. The 11 turbines provide a capacity of 23MW and are located adjacent to the 39 MW AMAYO I wind project. The two ventures AMAYO I and AMAYO II are legally separated projects but the structure of ownership, construction, management and off-take contracts is analogous.

This investment was made in the framework of a Risk Sharing Agreement between BIO & FMO.

  • Fight against climate change and preservation of natural resources

    Energy produced from fossil sources to be replaced by CO2 free energy through the installation of the wind farm, reducing GHG-emissions by 185,544 tons of CO2 per year.
