Wind turbine specialist Vestas has secured the ninth intertidal order since winning its first intertidal order in Vietnam less than a year ago in December 2019.

Further, the Danish wind turbine manufacturer has won a 29 MW wind project from the Vietnamese developer, Soc Trang Energy Joint Stock Company, a subsidiary of Xuan Cau Company Ltd.

As per the deal, the company will provide site-specific solutions for complex and challenging site conditions that require careful planning and execution.

The Soc Trang 7 wind project is located in Soc Trang, a province in the Mekong Delta of southern Vietnam, and will feature 7 V150-4.2 MW turbines with customised towers placed on reinforced onshore foundations raised above sea level in the shallow near-shore waters.

Commenting on the order win, Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific, said that “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.”

The company also said that it will work closely with the customer to handle the complexity of planning and executing the intertidal project, and will supervise the installation of the turbines, strategically placed to exploit the full potential of the Mekong Delta region’s favourable wind conditions.

“Vestas is proud to partner with local developers like Xuan Cau Company Ltd, 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,” Turton added.

The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement, designed to maximise energy production for the site. With a yield-based availability guarantee, the company claimed that it will provide the customer with long-term business case certainty.

Meanwhile, the project is expected to achieve commissioning during Q3 of 2021.
