Vestas Wins 21-Megawatt Order to Supply Wind Farm in Costa Rica

(Bloomberg) — 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.
