Vestas is in line to supply an unspecified 500MW-plus onshore project in Latin America.

The manufacturer has not provided further details about the conditional agreement but stated that it plans to share more information “if and when the project translates into a firm and unconditional order”.

A spokesman confirmed that the order was not for an offshore wind farm.

Developers in Latin America frequently build large onshore wind complexes or clusters divided into several smaller wind farms. The order could be for such a project.

Vestas has a further 4.5GW of recorded orders in Latin America, excluding the latest order, according to Windpower Intelligence, the research and data division of Windpower Monthly.

It has previously supplied 5.3GW of turbines for operational onshore wind farms in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
