Vestas wins largest Vietnamese wind turbine order to date
PRESS RELEASE – Vestas has secured its largest order in Vietnam to date. The manufacturer will supply, transport, install and commission a total of 36 4.2 MW wind turbines 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, a local independent power producer and electrical infrastructure company, in partnership with RENOVA, a Japanese renewable energy company.
All three projects are located in remote and complex mountainous terrain. Vestas will develop site-specific solutions and leverage synergies with its other wind projects in the area to optimise the construction and maintenance work by sharing warehousing, installation equipment and manpower to ensure higher availability levels to the projects. This new order takes Vestas’ 2020 order intake in Vietnam to over 300 MW.
“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”, said Clive Turton, president of Vestas Asia Pacific.
The order also includes a 10-year service agreement. The projects are planned to achieve commissioning in the third quarter of 2021.
