Vestas has secured its first full Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract in Vietnam with a 50MW order from Tra Vinh Wind Power (TWPC). The order marks Vestas’ second
intertidal deal in the country within a week.
The project will be constructed in shallow waters close to shore to capture the unblocked wind resources from the sea in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh. The turbines will be installed on reinforced onshore gravity foundations that are raised above sea level on multi-pile structures and connected to shore with link bridges that carry onshore power cables and facilitate access to the turbines for operation and maintenance purposes.
Vestas will provide a full turn-key solution with delivery, installation and commissioning of 12 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as the civil and electrical balance of plant. The order also includes a 10-year service agreement.
TWPC is jointly owned by Climate Investor One’s (CIO) Construction Equity Fund and Samtan, a Korean energy company investing in Energy Infrastructure and Renewable Energy. Construction of the project will start in the first quarter of 2020 and turbine delivery is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2020.
