Vestas will supply 16 V112-3.3 MW turbines for the San Antonio wind power plant in Guatemala. According to the turbine maker, the 53 MW project will be the first wind farm in the country.

Eolico San Antonio El Sitio S.A. and Wind Turbine Investments S.A. Corp., two special-purpose companies owned by Centrans Group and Victoria Corp., placed the order. Vestas says the contract includes the supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, along with a VestasOnline Business SCADA solution, full scope civil and electrical work, and a 10-year service agreement.

Delivery of the turbines will start in the fourth quarter of this year, and the wind project is expected to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2015.

“We are proud to be able to announce the signature for the first wind power plant in Guatemala,” says Vestas’ Adrian Katzew Corenstein, later adding, “Vestas’ strategy is to develop new markets together with our customers, and we express our gratitude to San Antonio for selecting us as their trusted partner.”
