For its first ever wind power project, Vietnamese customer Tan Hoan Cau Joint Stock Corporation (THC) has placed an order for 15 Vestas V100-2.0 MW turbines
The order is for the Huong Linh 2 Wind Farm in the Quang Tri Province in Vietnam’s north central coast region.
“For our very first venture into the wind energy business, we wanted to be in good and capable hands and we found that with Vestas. We are impressed with the technological advancement of Vestas’ products and their ability to match the right turbine for each specific wind site as well as their proven track record and extensive experience within the industry”, says Mai Van Hue, Chairman of THC.
Chris Beaufait, President of Vestas Asia Pacific and China adds that “Vietnam is a country with abundant wind resources - among the richest in South-East Asia and wind power represents an independent, competitive, and clean energy source to tackle the growing electricity demand in the country. We’re looking forward to the successful execution of the Huong Linh 2 wind farm project, and view this as the foundation for a promising future cooperation with our new customer, Tan Hoan Cau Joint Stock Corporation”.
The order comprises supply and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a five-year Active Output Management (AOM) 4000 service contract, in which Vestas guarantees a defined level of availability and performance. The order also includes SCADA VestasOnline Business for data-driven monitoring and preventive maintenance. Delivery and commissioning are expected in late 2016 and early 2017.
