On December 24, 2019, the first wind turbine in Binh Dinh province was installed completely and successfully at Phuong Mai 3 Wind Farm. Phuong Mai 3 project is invested by Central Wind Power JSC. (CWP), a member of Halcom Vietnam JSC.
Phuong Mai 3 Wind Power Plant at Nhon Hoi Economic Zone, Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh includes 6 turbines (capacity of 3.5MW per turbine) with the height of 114 meters, 132-meter rotor diameter in the total area of 122 ha. Siemens Gamesa (Europe) is the contractor providing wind turbines, operation and maintenance services for the project.
Since early Quarter 4, 2019, in preparation for the turbine installation, the foundation, paths and ground were completely constructed, meeting all technical requirements. The installation of 17-30 meter long & 49-89 ton weight towers, 65 meter long blades with total weight of 550 tons require high concentration, specialized equipment, together with a professional & skillful staff of experts and workers. Up to now, the tower installation of 6 turbines has been completed, and the rotor blades installation is on going. It takes at least 5 to 6 days to complete the blade installation of each turbine in good weather condition, therefore, the project is on construction throughout the coming Tet holidays.
