Vestas has secured an order of 101 MW for the second phase of the B&T wind farm with AMI AC Renewables, a joint venture between AC Energy and AMI Renewables.
The order closely matches a previous order of 84 MW for the project’s first phase. With this second win and a recent addition of 25 MW added to phase one, the combined 210 MW B&T wind farm will be Vestas’ largest wind project in Vietnam to date.
For the second phase of the project, to optimize wind energy production, Vestas will supply, transport, install and commission a total of 24 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines at a hub height of 145 meters.
The order also provides a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, which will include long-term business case assurance for the customer in conjunction with a yield-based availability guarantee.
“I would like to thank AMI AC Renewables for their continued trust and confidence by awarding us with both phases of this project. Vestas is excited to be part of the Quang Binh Province’s growing ambition to develop its wind power potential.”Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.
“The Quang Binh wind farm is an important milestone in AMI AC Renewables’ strategic journey. Together with our fruitful partnership with AC Energy and Vestas’ proven track record in the Asia Pacific region, we are confident that this project will contribute significantly to Vietnam’s energy development, which is essential to the nations’ economic growth and overall progress in improving quality of life.“Nguyen Nam Thang, chairman of AMI Renewables.
The construction of the project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2021, ahead of the current wind feed-in tariff deadline in Vietnam.
