Danish energy services company Vestas has secured a contract from AMI AC Renewables to supply 101MW of wind turbines.

The turbines will operate at the B&T Wind Farm, in the Quang Binh province of Vietnam. Under the contract, Vestas will supply, install, and commission 24 V150-4.2MW wind turbines for the project’s second phase.

AMI AC Renewables, a joint venture between AC Energy and AMI Renewables, manages the wind farm. AMI Renewables chairman Nguyen Nam Thang said: “The Quang Binh Wind Farm is an important milestone in AMI AC Renewables’ strategic journey.

“Together with our fruitful partnership with AC Energy and Vestas’ proven track record in the Asia Pacific region, we are confident this project will contribute significantly to Vietnam’s energy development, which is essential to the nations’ economic growth and overall progress in improving quality of life.”

The 210MW B&T wind farm combines two large-scale foreign-invested renewable energy projects.

Vestas has agreed to maintain the turbines for a period of 20 years under an active output management 5000 agreement.

The company’s Asia Pacific president Clive Turton said: “I would like to thank AMI AC Renewables for their continued trust and confidence by awarding us with both phases of this project.

“Vestas is excited to be part of the Quang Binh Province’s growing ambition to develop its wind power potential.”

Construction works will finish in the third quarter of next year, before the current Vietnamese wind feed-in tariff deadline.

In a statement, Vestas said the turbines will have a hub-height of 145m to optimise wind energy production. Upon completion, B&T Wind Farm will be Vestas’ largest wind project in Vietnam.

Last month, Vestas has secured a 48MW order from Phong Lieu Wind Power.
