Danish wind turbine maker Vestas has won a 50 MW order from Bac Phuong JSC, local EPC construction company, for the phase-II of the 100 MW Dong Hai 1 intertidal wind project, the largest intertidal wind project in Vietnam to date.

This is in line with the company’s earlier win in December 2019, in which it was awarded the first phase of the project.

The project is located in shallow waters close to shore in Bạc Liêu Province, both phases of the wind farm are strategically placed to exploit the full potential of the Mekong Delta region’s favourable wind conditions.

Commenting on the development, Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific, said that “we are pleased to have the opportunity to continue working with Bac Phuong JSC in the largest intertidal wind project in Vietnam to date. Securing the order within eight months of the first award both validates the company’s trust in our solutions, and showcases Vestas’ potential to help scale this business case within the tight timeline of Vietnam’s FIT policy.” 

With an aim to optimise energy production for the site’s specific wind conditions, the wind major will supply and supervise the installation of thirteen V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, with 10 turbines in 3.8 MW and 3 turbines in 4 MW operating modes.

“This is Vestas’ seventh intertidal win, demonstrating our ability to develop wind energy solutions for projects close to shore to capture the unblocked wind resources from the sea, and we are excited to support our partners in conquering this space,” said Turton.

The company has also signed a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, which is designed to maximise the energy production for the project.

Besides, this project will also feature customised towers placed on reinforced onshore foundations above the sea level. 

The company has ensured its customers for the long-term business case certainty with a yield-based availability guarantee.

Meanwhile, the company is expected to complete the wind turbine installation during the third quarter of 2021.
