December 19 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) said Wednesday it has developed a customised solution for a 50-MW intertidal project in Vietnam's Bac Lieu province.

The Danish company will supervise the installation of the 13 V150-4.2 MW turbines which are part of the project of local company Bac Phuong JSC.

Located in shallow waters close to shore in the Mekong Delta region, ten turbines will be delivered in a 3.8 MW modification while the  remaining three will operate in 4 MW modes. This is to better utilize the site’s specific wind conditions. Vestas said each turbine will count with a full-scale converter. It will also use locally produced towers and local contractors, the Sales Vice-President of Vestas Asia Pacific William Gaillard, said.

Under the agreement, which includes a 10-year Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service, commissioning is scheduled for the first quarter of 2021.

Earlier this week, the European firm announced it received supply orders for 53 MW in Poland and 21 MW in Australia.
