Siemens Gamesa has secured its fifth nearshore wind farm contract in Vietnam. The company has been commissioned to supply turbines for the 78 MW
Hiep Thanh wind farm, bringing its total secured orders in Vietnam to 174 MW.

The wind farm will be located 1-3 km off the coast of Tra Vinh Province. The project is being developed by EcoTech Tra Vinh Renewables JSC, and its investors, Janakuasa Pte Ltd, Ecotech Vietnam, Climate Investor One - which is managed by Climate Fund Managers (CFM) - and ST International.


Siemens Gamesa formed a consortium with PowerChina Huadong Engineering Co., Ltd., an engineering and construction company in China’s offshore wind power industry, to deliver an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) offering to the customer. The wind farm will feature 18 units of the SG 5.0-145 turbine, which are among the largest turbines on the Vietnamese market.


Commissioning of the wind farm is expected in the third quarter of 2021. Additionally, the company signed a long-term 10-year contract to provide operation and maintenance services.

“We’re pleased to see the Vietnamese government accelerating the development of renewable energies, which will be essential for a post Covid-19 economic recovery and meeting long-term energy and climate goals. Siemens Gamesa is well positioned to support our partners in Vietnam with our leading-edge engineering capabilities and strong project execution team for business success and clean energy transition,”
said Enrique Pedrosa, Chief Regions Officer of Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore business unit.

In Vietnam, Siemens Gamesa has built three wind farms, with seven more wind farms under construction. In the last three years, the company has sold approximately 550 MW in this market.
