November 18 (Renewables Now) - Philippine power producer AC Energy Corporation (PSE:ACEN) announced on Wednesday that a 252-MW wind farm in Quang Binh province, Vietnam, developed in tandem with its joint venture (JV) partner AMI Renewables, had reached commercial operations.

The Quang Binh wind farm, said to be one of the largest in Vietnam, is expected to generate some 648 GWh, or enough to power around 270,000 homes.

The project is the second wind farm for ACEN to be completed ahead of the feed-in-tariff deadline in Vietnam, and the third joint project it finalised in partnership with Vietnam-based outfit AMI Renewables.

Years back, ACEN and AMI Renewables set up the JV, AMI AC Renewables, to serve as a renewable energy platform in Vietnam.

Apart from the new wind farm, the platform has the 50-MW Khanh Hoa and the 30-MW Dak Lak solar farms in the portfolio. The companies recently announced a plan to add 15 MWh/7.5 MW of energy storage to the Khanh Hoa solar farm.
