Swiss Contribution

Swiss experience formed this project’s basis in digital cartography and wind measurements. A similar map was already created for Switzerland. There was good partnership with suitable local partners in this project.

Description

Both Swiss companies combined their expertise in this project. The wind map is intended for identifying suitable priority locations for the creation of wind power plants in Nicaragua and for generating further, specific project work.
