Vestas has secured an order for a 29 MW wind project from the Vietnamese developer, Soc Trang Energy Joint Stock Company, a subsidiary of Xuan Cau Company Limited.

Located in Soc Trang, a province in the Mekong Delta of southern Vietnam, the Soc Trang 7 wind project will feature seven
V150-4.2 MW turbines with customised towers placed on reinforced onshore foundations raised above sea level in the shallow near-shore waters.

Vestas will support the planning and execution the intertidal project, and supervise the installation of the turbines. The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement. The project is planned to achieve commissioning in the third quarter of 2021.

This will be Vestas’ ninth intertidal order since winning its first intertidal order in Vietnam less than a year ago in December 2019.
