At the Koraal Tabak site on the east coast of Curaçao, the official start was given for the construction of a fourth Aspiravi group wind farm on the island.

Aqualectra and NuCapital Aspiravi are jointly building five additional wind turbines on Koraal Tabak. During the groundbreaking ceremony, it became clear that at least 50 per cent of Curaçao’s electricity consumption will be able to be generated from renewable energy sources after realisation of this project. That share could increase even further in the future.

Moreover, the wind turbines contribute to lowering energy prices and reducing fuel imports. In this way, the local utility Aqualectra can strengthen its ambition to realise a more reliable, affordable and sustainable energy network.

The official inauguration ceremony included the first symbolic spade cutting by Prime Minister Gimar Pisas, the unveiling of the construction sign and interpretation of the project by several members of the Council of Ministers, as well as Roy M Kolader (Managing Director – NuCapital) and Neysa Isenia (acting CEO – Aqualectra).

Foundation works are currently being carried out. The effective erection of the wind turbines is planned for after the summer. If everything goes according to plan, wind farm NuKoraal Tabak will produce green power before the end of this year.
