March 27 (Renewables Now) - Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) has won a 29-MW wind turbine supply contract for another intertidal project in Vietnam, its fourth such order in the country.
Sigma Engineering Joint Stock Company has ordered seven V150-4.2 MW turbines for the Ben Tre V1-3 wind project, to be located in Ba Tri District of Ben Tre Province in the Mekong Delta region.
Vestas will supply the machines, each equipped with a full-scale converter, and supervise their installation in shallow waters close to shore. In addition, the Danish company will service the turbines under a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.
The deliveries are expected in the first quarter of next year, while installation is scheduled to start from the second quarter of 2021.
Just in the month of December 2019, Vestas reported three other orders relating to intertidal projects in Vietnam, each of 50 MW.
