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 full 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.
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.
“This fourth intertidal win reinforces Vestas’ leadership in developing wind energy solutions for this specific market segment in Vietnam and the 20-year service contract showcases 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.
William Gaillard, Sales Vice-President of Vestas Asia Pacific, added that Vietnam has one of the fastest-growing energy consumption rates in the world and that Vestas is keen to work closely with its customers to unlock the wind potential of the country.
Turbine delivery is scheduled in the first quarter of 2021 and installation is expected to commence from second quarter of 2021.
