Australian power company Nexif Energy has formed a 50/50 partnership with Ratch Group for the construction and operation of the 80 MW Nexif Energy Ben Tre wind project in Vietnam.
The Ben Tre wind project is being developed on a coastal site in Thanh Hai commune, Thanh Phu district of Ben Tre province, about 160 km southeast of Ho Chi Minh City.
All of the wind farm’s output will be sold to the Vietnam Electricity Corporation (EVN) under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
The project will house 19 Goldwind 155-4.5 MW turbines.
Permits and interconnection agreements for the project were obtained and construction activities began on May 15 with a construction schedule of 19 months for commercial operations.
SEPCOIII, a global engineering and construction company specializing in the construction of renewable, thermal, nuclear and seawater desalination projects, has been selected as an engineering, procurement and construction company and will also provide operation and maintenance services.
Nexif Founder Surender Singh said, “Nexif Energy is pleased to make rapid progress on the Ben Tre wind project and to expand its continuing relationship with Ratch Group.
“We share with Ratch a common vision to provide cutting-edge technological solutions to meet the challenges of the energy transition. “
