Vestas has secured its largest order in Vietnam to date for a total of 144 MW for the three wind parks Lien Lap, Phong Huy, and Phong Nguyen in the Quảng Trị Province.
The order is placed by Power Construction Company No.1 (PCC1), a local independent power producer and electrical infrastructure company, in partnership with RENOVA, a Japanese renewable energy company. Vestas will supply, transport, install and commission a total of 36 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines delivered in 4.0 MW operating mode.
By sharing warehousing, installation equipment and manpower, Vestas will leverage synergies with its other wind projects in the area to optimize construction and maintenance work to ensure higher levels of availability for projects. This latest order would take Vestas’s 2020 order intake to over 300 MW in Vietnam.
“Vestas is excited to partner with PCC1 and RENOVA for these three wind farms, one of the largest projects in the country. The Feed-in-Tariff deadline in Vietnam is fast-approaching and our customers need a reliable partner to ensure that projects can be executed expertly, before the October 2021 deadline. With our long history in Vietnam and already staffed-up team in the country we are happy to be able to provide all the comfort that our customers need from contracting to project execution.”Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.
The order also contains a service agreement for 10 years of Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000), designed to increase the sites’ energy production.
The projects are planned to achieve commissioning in the third quarter of 2021.
