Vietnam’s largest nearshore wind farm to feature Siemens Gamesa turbines
Siemens Gamesa has received an order for the 75 MW Tan Thuan nearshore wind farm in Vietnam, for which it will deliver its SG 5.0-145 turbines.
The Tan Thuan wind farm, due to be commissioned in mid-2021, is the largest nearshore project in Vietnam to date, according to Siemens Gamesa.
The company, for which this is the fourth nearshore project secured in the country, has also signed a ten-year contract to provide operation and maintenance services for the wind farm.
The project is being developed by Power Engineering Consulting Joint Stock Company 2.
The turbine supplier also won a contract for the Thai Hoa wind farm, and will deliver a total of 36 units of its 5 MW turbines with flexible power rating for the Tan Thuan and Thai Hoa wind farms.
In 2017, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) awarded a grant to Power Engineering Consulting Joint Stock Company 2 to support development of the Tan Thuan nearshore wind farm.
According to news from that time, the wind farm was planned to be developed in two phases, with the first phase having a capacity of 24 MW and the second phase adding further 76 MW.
The Tan Thuan wind farm is located in Vietnam’s Ca Mau province.
