HCMC – On September 3, GE Renewable Energy announced that it had secured two 30 MW contracts to supply 12 wind turbines to support the construction of the Quoc Vinh Soc Trang and Lac Hoa Soc Trang wind farms in the Mekong Delta.

PowerChina Huadong Engineering Corporation will provide complete Engineering, Procurement and Construction services for the projects, the first partnership in Vietnam with the corporation, a long-term global EPC partner of GE.

Gilan Sabatier, Regional Leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind Business in South Asia and ASEAN, said in a statement, “We are extremely delighted to announce these two new deals in Vietnam with PowerChina, reiterating their confidence in our capabilities… I’d also like to thank Quoc Vinh Soc Trang Wind Power Company Ltd and Renewable Energy Joint Stock Company Vinh Chau for their trust.”

“We are delighted to collaborate with GE in this endeavor, as we aim to contribute to the country’s cleaner sources of energy,” said PowerChina, adding, “We are anxious to start the project and expect to complete it by the end of 2021.”

The Cypress onshore wind platform enables significant annual energy production improvements, increases efficiency in serviceability, improves logistics and siting potential and, ultimately, more value for customers. Each wind farm is expected to contribute in excess of 100 million kWh of electricity annually to the national grid once the project is fully operational by the third quarter of 2021.

These two new wind projects further expand GE’s role in Vietnam by providing technological support for a variety of power generation projects throughout the country. GE Vietnam has more than 1600 employees and is the only wind OEM with a manufacturing footprint in the country.
