Renewables Now:

Vestas Wind Systems A/S on Tuesday unveiled a 50-MW order for an intertidal project in Vietnam and a 150-MW deal for an unspecified Chinese project.

The Vietnamese order was placed by Phuong Anh Group and covers the second phase of the Hoa Binh 1 wind farm project, the Danish manufacturer said. It will supply and oversee the installation of 13 pieces of its V150-4.2 MW turbines, 10 units of which will be delivered in 3.8 MW mode and three in a 4-MW operating mode. A 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement is also included.

The machines will be erected in shallow waters close to the shore along the Mekong Delta region, with turbine installation seen to be completed in the third quarter of 2021. The project is in Hoa Binh district, Bac Lieu Province.

This is Vestas’ eighth order to equip an intertidal wind farm in Vietnam, among which is the first 50-MW phase of the Hoa Binh 1 project. This latest deal has expanded its order intake in the Southeast Asian country to over 1 GW, it said.

In China, Vestas has secured an order for 150 MW of turbines, including 53 V120-2.2 MW machines in 2.4 MW power optimised mode and seven V155-3.3 MW turbines. The name of the customer and their project were kept confidential at the client’s request.
