November 7 (Renewables Now) - Singapore-based renewables developer The Blue Circle has completed the construction of the second phase of the 40-MW Dam Nai wind farm in Vietnam’s Ninh Thuan province.
Dam Nai Project Phase 2 is yet to be commissioned this month, with commercial generation scheduled to start in December.
Comprising 12 turbines, this wind farm is now the largest of its kind in the Southeast Asian country as well as the firm's first to reach completion, The Blue Circle said. The plant is located in the middle of rice fields at a site with the potential for 80 MW to 120 MW of installed capacity. The first phase of the project involved installing three G114-2.625MW turbines supplied by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE).
The Blue Circle has 700 MW of wind energy capacity currently under development in four Vietnam provinces, it noted.
