Vestas has bagged a 50 MW order from EPC construction company, Bac Phuong JSC for the second phase of the Dong Hai 1 intertidal wind project.
This project win comes after Vestas was awarded the first phase of the project in December 2019. With this second phase in place, the 100 MW Dong Hai 1 intertidal wind project will be the largest intertidal wind project in Vietnam to date.
Vestas will supply and supervise the installation of 13 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, with ten turbines in 3.8 MW and three turbines in 4.0 MW operating modes. The wind power project will feature customised towers placed on reinforced onshore foundations above sea level.
Located in shallow waters close to shore in Bạc Lieu Province, both phases of the Dong Hai 1 wind farm are strategically placed to exploit the full potential of the Mekong Delta region’s favourable wind conditions.
“Securing the order within eight months of the first award both validates the company’s trust in our solutions, and showcases Vestas’ potential to help scale this business case within the tight timeline of Vietnam’s FIT policy,” said Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.
Vestas will provide the customer with long-term business case certainty by offering a yield-based availability guarantee.
Vestas in an statement said that it will complete the installation of wind turbine in the third quarter of 2021.
