Siemens Gamesa Lands Its Largest Nearshore Project in Vietnam

Siemens Gamesa has secured contracts to provide wind turbines and operations & maintenance services for a 100 MW nearshore wind farm in Vietnam.

The Tra Vinh Dong Hai 1 wind farm will feature 25 SG 5.0-145 turbines with a flexible power rating.

Additionally, Siemens Gamesa signed a 20-year long-term contract to provide O&M services for the project.

This is Siemens Gamesa’s largest nearshore wind project in Vietnam to date.

Paulo Soares, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore business unit in Asia Pacific, said:  “We are investing to grow our team and presence in Vietnam to ensure that we produce the best solutions available to help our valued customers accelerate the development of wind energy in the country.”

Located some 3.5 kilometres offshore the Tra Vinh province, the Tra Vinh Dong Hai 1 wind farm is the first nearshore project by Trungnam Group as the company expands to the nearshore sector to complement its existing renewables portfolios for solar and onshore wind projects.
