Vestas to supply 24mw for hydrochina
Danish company Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said Tuesday it will supply 24 MW of its turbines to HydroChina International for a project in the southeastern parts of Vietnam.
Under the terms of the contract, the value of which was not disclosed, the manufacturer will deliver and supervise the installation and commissioning of 12 units of its V100-2.0 MW machines. The deal also includes a five-year Active Output Management (AOM 4000) service agreement and a Vestas SCADA solution, according to the press release.
Hydrochina is a subsidiary of Chinese engineering and construction firm Power Construction Corp of China Ltd (SHA:601669), or PowerChina. After signing a turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the project with domestic utility Electricity of Vietnam (EVN) in early June, the company has now placed the first firm and unconditional order under its global partnership with Vestas.
The Phu Lac wind farm will be located in the district of Tuy Phong. Once operational, it will become the biggest wind park in the country equipped by the Danish firm.
Four years after installing one of the first commercial wind parks in Vietnam, Vestas currently plans to set up a local service team. “Wind power is an independent, competitive, and clean energy source that helps Vietnam to meet its growing electricity demand and we have the ambition to closely support the future development of the wind power sector in this market,” Vestas Asia Pacific and China president, Chris Beaufait, noted.
