Singaporean developer Blue Circle has completed construction of phase two of the Dam Nai wind farm in Vietnam bringing total capacity 40MW.

The second stage has added 12 turbines to the three Siemens Gamesa G114-2.625MW machines that have been operating since October 2017 in Ninh Thuan province in the south of the country, the company said.

Commissioning of the turbines will take place this month and commercial operations are expected to start in December, it added.

Blue Circle chairman and chief executive Olivier Duguet said: “Construction of the Dam Nai project phase two has been carried out with huge pressure coming from the imminent arrival of the monsoon season, which starts in November, when high winds would have prevented the erection of the largest rotors in Vietnam.

“Our teams, together with Siemens-Gamesa and partners, have done a fantastic job to achieve the construction of what is now the Vietnam’s largest onshore wind power project.”

Blue Circle said the site has the potential for total installed capacity of between 80 to 120MW and the company will continue with further developments in the area.
