Of the 24 licenses for wind power generation that are currently being processed, eight are for the Enrilews S.A. Company.
The eight concessions for the Enrilews S.A. Company are at the stage where the corresponding environmental impact studies must be presented. The projects will be located at sites as far as Colon, Cocle, Chiriqui, Veraguas and Eastern Panama.
The company Enrilews, Panamanian subsidiary of Span's Fersa, was authorized to build a second wind energy farm in the country.
This new farm will be located in the province of Coclé, and will be developed in three phases. In the first one, the company will invest 126 million euros ($180 million), in order to generate 105 MW of clean energy. This phase could be finished by the end of 2011.
Spanish firm, Fersa, has obtained authorization from the Government of Panama to build and operate the first wind farm in the country.
The construction of the first phase of the project, which will generate 150 MW, will start in the second quarter of 2009. Fersa plans to invest $311 million (225 million euros) and expects the farm to be operational by the end of 2010 and should reach a production of 540,000 gigawatts per year.
By the middle of the year, the company Fersa is planning to start the construction of the Toabré Wind Farm, located in the Cocle Province.

The Toabré Wind Farm will generate up to 225 megawatts (MW) when work is completed, supplying 9% of local demand.
