Vestas Receives Ninth Intertidal Turbine Order in Vietnam
Vestas has received an order to supply the turbines for the 29 MW Soc Trang 7 intertidal wind project in Vietnam.
Soc Trang 7 will feature seven V150-4.2 MW turbines with customized towers placed on reinforced onshore foundations located in Soc Trang, a province in the Mekong Delta of southern Vietnam.
Vestas said it will work closely with developer Soc Trang Energy Joint Stock Company to handle the complexity of planning and executing the intertidal project, and will supervise the installation of the turbines.
The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement.
The project is planned to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2021.
This will be Vestas’ ninth intertidal order in Vietnam since winning its first less than a year ago.
“Having won over 1 GW of new wind projects in Vietnam, this deal underlines the confidence that our customers have in us and our ability to develop wind energy solutions for complex and challenging environments,” said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific.
“Vestas is proud to partner with local developers like Xuan Cau Company Limited, who are eager to expand their renewable footprint in Vietnam. We look forward to working closely with them to grow the large potential for intertidal wind projects in the region.”
