GE Renewable Energy has secured a contract by Ocean Renewable Energy Joint Stock Company to supply a total of 15 of GE’s 4 MW-137 wind turbines for the construction of the Cau Dat wind farm in Vietnam.
The contract also provides a 10-year full service O&M agreement for operation and maintenance of the wind farm. This is the first partnership with Ocean Renewable Energy Joint Stock Company. Both companies have been working closely for a year on wind farm design, layout, transportation and engineering.
The turbines, which will have a hub height of 111.5 meters, are ideally suited to exploit the wind conditions in the mountainous range of Lam Đong province in the Central Highland region of Vietnam.
Construction of the Cau Dat wind farm, which is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2021, will provide immense benefits for the economy of the province creating jobs during the initial construction period and ongoing employment opportunities in operations, maintenance and project support services throughout the agreement period.
“We thank Ocean Renewable Energy Joint Stock Company and their leadership team for selecting GE on this project. The award of the Cau Dat wind farm further validates our commitment to Vietnam and underscores our important contribution to the country’s energy transition.”Gilan Sabatier, regional leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind Business in South Asia and ASEAN.
“We are delighted to sign this important deal with GE Renewable Energy for our first wind farm project. This project helps Lâm Đồng province contribute to the renewable energy goal of the country as well as lays the foundation for expansion of the project in the coming years.”Do Van Binh, general director of Ocean Renewable Energy Joint Stock Company.
