This is the company’s largest onshore wind order awarded in Vietnam so far.

Wind turbine maker Siemens Gamesa has secured a 117-megawatt (MW) order from a local-independent power producer in Vietnam, marking it the company’s largest onshore wind farm order to date in the country.

The supply to Hanbaram Wind Power in Vietnam’s central province of Ninh Thuan reinforces Siemens Gamesa’s position in Vietnam’s fast-growing wind industry following a series of both onshore and nearshore projects announced in 2020.

Partnering with the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor, SEPEC-China Energy, Siemens Gamesa will supply and commission 29 units of its Siemens Gamesa 4.X platform in the 145 meters rotor diameter variant.

The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in the third quarter of 2021, supplying power to roughly 248,000 people.

“Backed by our leading technology and track record of delivering projects in Vietnam and Asia Pacific, we are pleased to support Hanbaram Wind Power JSC’s entry in the wind energy sector. With a strong and growing team in Vietnam, we are well positioned and firmly committed to bringing clean energy to support economic growth and ease power shortage in Vietnam,” said Paulo Soares, the CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s Onshore business unit in the Asia Pacific.

A continued investment in wind and renewable energy technologies is equally critical to energy security as well as economic growth and job creation in Vietnam. We look forward to a constructive mechanism to support the continued growth in the wind industry when the current FiT expires in November 2021, he added.

Vietnam’s feed-in-tariff (FIT) scheme has fuelled the country’s wind industry to an accelerated growth in the past two years.

The Vietnamese government is increasing its stake in renewable energies to 15-20% of its total energy output by 2030. According to the forecast by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), at least 4,000MW of wind farm projects will be commissioned by 2025.
