March 26 (Renewables Now) - Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) has secured an order to supply 113 MW of turbines for the Hoa Thang 1.2 wind farm project in Vietnam.
The turbine maker announced today it will supply 25 pieces of the SG 4.5-145 machines for what it says will be one of Vietnam’s largest wind farms. The order is accompanied by a ten-year operation and maintenance (O&M) agreement.
