As part of the deal, Vestas will supply seven V90-3MW wind turbines for the Tilawind wind power plant, situated in Guanacaste province.

The contract scope also includes commissioning of the turbines, providing VestasOnline Business SCADA system, as well as a ten-year Active Management Output (AOM) 5000 service agreement.

Tilawind CEO Carlos Graffigna said the company is looking forward to install first Costa Rican plant with Vestas turbines.
