Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas said Wednesday it has won a new wind power project in Vietnam, bringing its order intake in the country to over 1 gigawatts (GW).
The milestone was reached after securing its eighth intertidal project in Vietnam – a 50-megawatt (MW) order for the second phase of Hoa Binh 1 wind farm. An intertidal wind farm is above water level at low tide and underwater at high tide.
The expansion project, located in Hòa Bình, a district of Bạc Liêu Province, will feature 13 turbines. Vestas plans to install the turbines in shallow waters, close to shore along the Mekong Delta region, by the end of the third quarter of 2021, Kallanish Energy reports.
The deal, awarded by the Phuong Anh Group, also includes a 20-year service agreement.
“With over 1 GW of projects won in Vietnam, this is a clear testament of our customers’ confidence in Vestas’ ability to develop wind energy solutions for all types of wind projects in the country,” said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.
