Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the world’s largest turbine maker, won an order to supply equipment with 21 megawatts of capacity to a project in Costa Rica.
Vestas will install the seven 3-megawatt turbines after it delivers them in the third quarter, the Aarhus, Denmark-based manufacturer said Tuesday in a statement on its website. Fila de Mogote, a Hunt Energy Horizons subsidiary, ordered the equipment for an undisclosed sum. The sale includes a 10-year service agreement.
The Mogote wind farm in Guanacaste is expected to be operational by the end of the year and will be the fifth in Costa Rica powered by Vestas turbines.
“Costa Rica’s bet on wind energy is an important step in the fight against climate change in a country particularly endowed with a spectacular natural environment,” Marco Graziano, president of Vestas Mediterranean, said in the statement.
