The leading wind turbine manufacturer and supplier in the world – Vestas has announced that it has won three orders worth a combined 191 MW for projects in Vietnam and Japan.

The first, a 101 MW order secured with AMI AC Renewables Corporation, a joint venture between AC Energy and AMI Renewables, for the second phase of the B&T Wind Farm. The order closely follows the recent 84 MW order for the first phase of the project. With this second win and a recent addition of  25 MW added to phase one, the combined 210 MW B&T Wind Farm will be Vestas’ largest wind project in Vietnam to date.

For the second phase of the project, Vestas will supply, transport, install and commission a total of 24 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines at a hub-height of 145m to optimise wind energy production. The order also includes a 20-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement that in combination with a yield-based availability guarantee will provide the customer with long-term business case certainty.

“I would like to thank AMI AC Renewables for their continued trust and confidence by awarding us with both phases of this project,” said Clive Turton, President of Vestas Asia Pacific. “Vestas is excited to be part of the Quang Binh Province’s growing ambition to develop its wind power potential.”

The construction of the project is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2021, ahead of the current wind feed-in tariff deadline in Vietnam.

The second, is a 50 MW order with local EPC construction company, Bac Phuong JSC for the second phase of the Dong Hai 1 intertidal wind project in Vietnam. This project win comes after Vestas was awarded the first phase of the project in December 2019. With this second phase in place, the 100 MW Dong Hai 1 intertidal wind project will be the largest intertidal wind project in Vietnam to date.

To optimise energy production for the site’s specific wind conditions, Vestas will supply and supervise the installation of 13 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, with ten turbines in 3.8 MW and three turbines in 4.0 MW operating modes. The project will also feature customised towers placed on reinforced onshore foundations above sea level. Located in shallow waters close to shore in Bạc Liêu Province, both phases of the Dong Hai 1 wind farm are strategically placed to exploit the full potential of the Mekong Delta region’s favourable wind conditions.

Turbine installation is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2021.

The final order was secured with the Japan Wind Development (JWD) for the Hirado Minami Wind Farm in Japan’s Nagasaki prefecture, following last month’s project win with Japan Wind Development and Tokyu Land Corporation.

The order includes the supply and supervision of 11 V105-3.6 MW turbines for the 40 MW project, delivered with customised 72.5-meter towers. The solution was developed in close collaboration with JWD in order to accommodate the extreme local wind conditions, whilst simultaneously minimising visual impact due to the site’s natural beauty.

“We are very pleased to have been awarded this project and thereby continue our collaboration with Japan Wind Development. Securing this order within weeks of the first order demonstrates JWD’s continued trust and confidence in Vestas and our ability to provide customised solutions,” said Turton. “With the momentum we are gaining in the Japanese market, Vestas is ready and committed to support the country’s growing ambition to increase renewable energy sources.”

Delivery of the turbines will begin in the second quarter of 2021, with commissioning scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021.
