GE Renewable Energy has secured a 27.2 MW contract to supply 8 units of its 3 MW-137 wind turbines to support construction of the Phuoc Minh Wind Farm, located in Ninh Thuan, in the South Central Region of Vietnam. A consortium of PowerChina Huadong Engineering Corporation, Henste Engineering and IPC Group will provide full engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. The wind farm is expected to be fully operational by the third quarter of 2021. Once commissioned, it will generate over 100 million kWh of electricity annually to the national grid.

Gilan Sabatier, Regional Leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind Business in South Asia and ASEAN said, “We are proud to announce this new deal in Vietnam with PowerChina which cements our partnership in this growing market. This is another step in supporting the rise of renewable energy in Vietnam and reinforces our commitment to serve the energy needs of the country. I’d like to also thank Phuoc Minh Wind Power Company Ltd for their trust. These new project commitments add to the already sizeable project backlog for us in Vietnam and position us as one of the leading technology providers in the country.”

Ha Do Van, Director of Phuoc Minh Wind Power Company Ltd said, “We have full faith in the two most experienced international companies – GE and PowerChina and are confident the world’s leading manufacturer of wind turbines will ensure the success of our wind energy project.”
