Danish renewables consultancy K2 Management (K2M) announced today it has completed its owner’s engineer job on a now commercially operational 88-MW wind farm in Vietnam’s Ninh Thuan region.
K2M worked on the final phase of the 22-turbine farm, a joint venture (JV) between Vietnamese private conglomerate BIM Group and AC Energy, the energy arm of Philippines' Ayala Corp (PSE:AC).
Located in a salt production hub, K2M expects the Ninh Thuan wind park to be able to produce 327 GWh per year once fully operational. The plant's output will be used to power the salt facilities and will be fed into the grid.
This is the second wind project K2M has worked on in the same region, following the Dam Nai wind farm built in the middle of rice fields.
“These power assets will not only provide green power to thousands of homes, but will also preserve natural sea salt and rice production, two industries that are vital to local economies in Vietnam, and decarbonising them is a huge step forward," said K2M's Asia Pacific president Patrick Architta.
