Vestas has won a 29 MW order from Sigma Engineering Joint Stock Company, its fourth intertidal project in Vietnam.
Vestas said the contract includes the supply and supervision of the installation of seven V150-4.2 MW wind turbines for the Ben Tre V1-3 wind project located in Ba Tri District of Ben Tre Province in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam.
Vestas will install seven V150-4.2 MW wind turbines in shallow waters close to shore to optimise energy production and utilize the potential of the Mekong Delta region’s good wind conditions. Each turbine will be equipped with a full-scale converter, enhancing the wind park’s compliance with grid requirements.
Vestas said the order will include a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, designed to maximise uptime and optimise energy production for the lifetime of the project. It is the longest service contract for Vestas or any other wind turbine manufacturer in Vietnam.
“The fourth intertidal win in Vietnam and the 20-year service contract showcase Vestas’ capabilities to service challenging intertidal projects over the project lifetime, thus de-risking the project for its investors and lenders,” said Tommaso Rovatti Studihrad, sales director of Vestas Asia Pacific.
“As the EPC contractor for the Phase I of Ben Tre V1-3 wind farm project, the project will be successfully installed and operating on schedule with Vestas’ team of experienced experts,” Nguyen Quang Ngoc, chairman of Sigma Engineering Joint Stock Company said in a statement.
