has secured a 50 MW order, with the Hoa
Binh 1 intertidal
wind farm project owned by Phuong Anh Group. The order marks Vestas’ third
intertidal project in the country with three different customers announced
in the past month.
The project will be located in Hòa Bình, a district of Bạc Liêu Province,
where the turbines will be installed in shallow waters close to shore to
exploit the full potential of the Mekong Delta region’s good wind conditions.
The contract includes supply and supervision over the installation of 13
V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, with ten delivered in 3.8 MW and three in 4.0
MW operating modes. Each turbine will be equipped with a full-scale converter.
The project also includes a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM
5000) service agreement. Turbine installation is expected to be completed
in the third quarter of 2021.
“This third intertidal win demonstrates Vestas’ ability to develop wind
energy solutions for projects close to shore to capture the unblocked wind
resources from the sea”, said Tommaso Rovatti Studihrad, Sales Director
of Vestas Asia Pacific. “We had to collaborate very closely to ensure
the suitability of the foundation design for the marine conditions, and
we would like to thank Hoa Binh 1 Company for choosing to work with us
on this project”.
Mr. Dao Hai Linh, General Director of Hoa Binh 1 Company, said: “We
highly appreciate the experience and strong support from the Vestas team
during the project development process; this project is the important initial
step for long-term partnership between us. On this basis, we will continue
developing the future phases of the project with a total capacity of 100
MW. We look forward to extending our cooperation beyond turbine supply,
including installation as well as EPC services for our projects”.
Earlier in December, Vestas was commissioned to supply a customised solution
for a 50 MW intertidal project in Bạc Liêu Province, Vietnam, for local
construction company Bac Phuong JSC. The project includes a combination
of V150-4.2 MW turbines in different power ratings with site-specific towers
placed on reinforced onshore foundations that are raised above sea level.
This was followed by Vestas securing an Engineering, Procurement and Construction
contract in Vietnam with a 50 MW order from Tra Vinh Wind Power Co. Ltd.
The order for the Truong
project included full turn-key solution with delivery, installation and
commissioning of 12 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as the civil and
electrical balance of plant. The order also includes a 10-year Active Output
Management 4000 service agreement
