Vestas has developed a customised solution for a 50MW intertidal project in Bạc Liêu Province, Vietnam for the local EPC construction company Bac Phuong JSC. The intertidal project site is covered in water at high tide and some of the turbines will be uncovered at low tide.
Vestas will supervise the installation of the turbines in shallow waters close to shore in the Mekong Delta region. The project includes a combination of V150-4.2MW turbines in different power ratings with site-specific towers placed on reinforced onshore foundations that are raised above sea level. The contract includes the supply and supervision of the installation of 13 V150-4.2MW wind turbines with ten turbines delivered in 3.8MW and three turbines delivered in 4.0MW operating modes and each turbine will be equipped with a full-scale converter. The project also includes a 10-year service agreement and turbine installation is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.
