Vestas secures Vietnam contract

In: Windfarms
Vestas has secured an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract in Vietnam with a 50 MW order from Tra Vinh Wind Power Co. Ltd. (TWPC). The order for the Truong Long Hoa project marks Vestas’ first EPC contract in Vietnam.

Vestas will provide a 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 (AOM 4000) service agreement, designed to maximise uptime and ensure optimised performance of the site.

The project will be constructed in shallow waters close to shore to capture the wind resources from the sea in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh. The turbines will be installed on reinforced onshore gravity foundations that are raised above sea level on multi-pile structures and connected to shore with link bridges that carry onshore power cables and facilitate easy access to the turbines for operation and maintenance purposes.

TWPC is jointly owned by Climate Investor One’s (CIO) Construction Equity Fund, a blended finance facility managed by Climate Fund Managers (CFM), specialising in renewables energy investments in emerging markets and Samtan, a Korean energy company investing in Energy Infrastructure and Renewable Energy.

”The Tra Vinh near shore wind project is a flagship project for the region and a necessary intervention to provide further clean energy to Vietnam”, said Andrew Johnstone, CEO of Climate Fund Managers. “CFM is pleased to partner with Vestas in its capacity as a full-service EPC provider in a frontier project”. 

Construction of the project will start in the first quarter of 2020 and turbine delivery is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2020.
