Vestas has received an order with Fila de Mogote, a subsidiary of U.S.-based Hunt Energy Horizons (Hunt Oil), for the 21 MW Mogote wind farm, located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
Per the agreement, Vestas will supply and install seven V90-3.0 MW wind turbines at the Mogote wind farm. The contract includes 10-year service agreement. Turbine delivery is expected to begin in the third quarter, with commissioning planned for the end of this year.
The wind farm has an estimated annual production of 100 GW/h, the equivalent electricity consumption of approximately 140,000 people in Costa Rica.
Last year, Vestas announced a 21 MW order for the Tilawind wind power plant in Guanacaste, which will be soon under operation. Once Tilawind is fully operational, Vestas turbines will power four wind farms in Costa Rica, including Aeroenergia (6.7 MW), Tierras Morenas (24 MW) and Tejona (19.8 MW).
