Vestas has secured its fourth intertidal project in Vietnam with a 29 MW order from Sigma Engineering Joint Stock Company. The Ben Tre V1-3 wind project will be located in Ba Tri District of Ben Tre Province in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam. The contract includes the supply and supervision of the installation of seven V150-4.2 MW wind turbines that will be installed in shallow waters close to shore to optimise energy production and exploit the potential of the Mekong Delta’s favourable wind conditions. Each turbine will be equipped with a full-scale converter, enhancing the wind park’s compliance with grid requirements.
The order will include a 20-year 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.
Turbine delivery is scheduled in the first quarter of 2021 and installation is expected to commence from second quarter of 2021.
