GE Renewable Energy has secured a contract with BIM Wind JSC (BIM Wind) to supply, install, and commission GE Cypress onshore wind turbines for BIM Wind’s 88-MW wind farm located in Ninh Thuận Province, South Central Vietnam. BIM Wind is a project joint venture company between AC Energy, the power generation platform of Ayala Corporation, one of the largest Philippine conglomerates, and BIM Energy Holding, the renewable energy platform of BIM Group, one of Vietnam’s largest privately-owned conglomerates.
The 88-MW order is GE’s largest Cypress platform deal in South-East Asia, eclipsing three other Cypress orders in Vietnam over the last 12 months. It includes a 15-year full-service agreement. The project is expected to be commissioned and operational by the end of third quarter of 2021. All turbines will be equipped with the two-piece blade design.
“This is AC Energy’s second wind farm in Vietnam utilizing GE Renewable Energy’s turbines,” said AC Energy International Chief Operating Officer Patrice Clausse. “As we expand our renewable energy initiatives in the region, we look into partners like GE, with their long-established focus on new technologies, to underpin our 2025 goal. AC Energy aims to accelerate the energy transition in Vietnam through partners such as BIM Renewables and GE.”
