Viết email In

GE Renewable Energy has been awarded a contract by Ocean Renewable Energy JSC to supply 15 GE 4 MW-137 wind turbines to support the construction of the Cau Dat Wind Farm, the first wind farm in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.

The turbines, which have a hub height of 111.5 meters and a rotor diameter of 137 meters, are ideally suited to exploit the wind conditions in the mountainous range of Lam Dong Province.

The contract also provides a 10-year full-service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind farm.

This is the first partnership between GE and Ocean Renewable Energy JSC. Both companies have been working closely for a year on the wind farm design, layout, transportation and engineering.

The construction of the Cau Dat Wind Farm, which is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2021, will provide immense benefits for the economy of the province, creating jobs during the initial construction period and ongoing employment opportunities in operations, maintenance and project support services throughout the agreement period.

“We are delighted to sign this important deal with GE Renewable Energy for our first wind farm project,” said Do Van Binh, general director of Ocean Renewable Energy JSC.

The Cau Dat Wind Farm is built on an area covering 350 hectares in Xuan Truong and Tram Hanh communes, Dalat City. It has an installed capacity of 50 MW and annual average output of 150 million KWh.

According to Binh, this project will help Lam Dong Province contribute to the renewable energy goal of the country as well as lay the foundation for the expansion of the project in the coming years.

GE is a long-term partner in supporting Vietnam’s energy transition by bringing its innovative technology to support Vietnam in its efforts to power households with sustainable energy.

Vietnam has seen an increase in the demand for energy and this wind project further expands GE’s contribution in providing technological support for a variety of power generation projects throughout the country.

GE Vietnam has more than 1,600 employees in Vietnam and is the only wind original equipment manufacturer with a manufacturing footprint in the country.

"We thank Ocean Renewable Energy JSC and their leadership team for selecting GE on this project. The award of the Cau Dat Wind Farm further validates our commitment to Vietnam and underscores our important contribution to the country’s energy transition,” said Gilan Sabatier, regional leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind Business in South Asia and ASEAN.
