The wind major also provides tailor-made solutions as per the specific requirements, after working closely with the customer to understand their requirements and the site conditions.

The company said that it was able to customise a solution featuring V150-4.2 MW turbines at a hub height of 145m to help optimise the wind energy production for the project.

With this order, the company’s order intake for the V150-4.2 MW wind turbine in Vietnam reached more than 600 MW since its first order win in the month of March last year.

As per the company, these wind turbines are an excellent fit to deliver high and efficient energy production in Vietnam’s low to medium wind speeds.

Commenting on the development, Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific, said that “Vestas is extremely excited about the current boom in activity in Vietnam’s wind market.”

Turton further added, “we are thrilled to work closely with our customers and partners to bring our world-leading wind energy solutions to the market, helping Vietnam grow into a regional leader in clean energy.”

Moreover, this 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 will provide the customer with long-term business case certainty.

However, the company didn’t disclose about the project and the customer.

Meanwhile, the construction of the project is expected to be completed during Q3 2021, ahead of the current wind feed-in tariff deadline in Vietnam.

Recently, Vestas has entered into a partnership with Rabobank and Windpark Zeewolde B.V. to build Netherland’s largest onshore wind project. Also, the three companies have closed the contracts for wind turbines and financing for the Windpark Zeewolde project in the Netherlands.

Besides, it has also secured its second full EPC contract in Vietnam with a 48 MW Tra Vinh V1-3 project from Vietnamese publicly listed company REE Corporation.
