Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Vestas Wind Systems A/S won a 21- megawatt order from a new customer in Costa Rica, expanding the Danish manufacturer’s presence in Latin America.

The order for seven V-90 3-megawatt machines is for the Tilawind power plant in the province of Guanacaste, Aarhus-based Vestas said today in a statement on its website. It was placed by Tilawind Corp., jointly owned by New Tessela and Gruman Resources, both of which develop renewable energy projects in Costa Rica and the wider region, Vestas said.

By the end of 2013, Vestas had delivered a total of 51 megawatts of turbines to Costa Rica. The latest order is due for delivery in the third quarter, with the plant set to start generating by the end of the year. It includes a 10-year service agreement.
