Vestas has secured an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract in Vietnam with a 50 MW order from Tra Vinh Wind Power Co. Ltd. (TWPC).
The project will be constructed in shallow waters close to shore to capture the unblocked wind resources from the sea in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh. The turbines will be installed on reinforced onshore gravity foundations that are raised above sea level on multi-pile structures and connected to shore with link bridges that carry onshore power cables and facilitate easy access to the turbines for operation and maintenance purposes.
Vestas will provide a full turn-key solution with delivery, installation and commissioning of 12 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as the civil and electrical balance of plant. The order also includes a 10-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement, designed to maximise uptime and ensure optimised performance of the site.
TWPC is jointly owned by Climate Investor One's (CIO) Construction Equity Fund, a blended finance facility managed by Climate Fund Managers (CFM), specialising in renewables energy investments in emerging markets and Samtan, a Korean energy company investing in Energy Infrastructure and Renewable Energy.
Construction of the project will start in Q1 2020 and turbine delivery is expected to commence in Q3 2020.
