48MW Tra Vinh intertidal wind project in Vietnam goes online

The project was also among the 28 wind farms that met the deadline to qualify for feed-in tariffs. 

The 48-megawatt (MW) Tra Vinh Wind Power intertidal wind farm project in Vietnam has commenced commercial operations, renewable energy development services provider Modern Energy Management said.

The wind farm investors are Climate Investor One, a blended finance facility providing renewable energy infrastructure projects in emerging markets, and South Korean energy company ST International. The Tra Vinh project is ST International’s first investment in Vietnam.

Modern Energy Management, meanwhile served as Owner’s Representative for the development of the project in 2017 and was retained to manage the completion of construction to ensure the project reaches commercial operations ahead of the 1 November deadline for feed-in tariff.

The wind farm project was among the 28 wind farm projects amounting to 1.2 gigawatts (GW) that was able to meet the deadline to qualify for Vietnam’s feed-in-tariff (FiT).

Initially, a total of 106 projects amounting to 5.6GW of wind capacity were in construction for the planned FiT of $0.098 for offshore and $0.085 for onshore wind. Only 28 projects met the deadline due to the complications brought about by the pandemic, it noted.

The two will collaborate to assess the role of green hydrogen in India’s energy transition.
This was met by renewables as well as coal, and gas generation.
It forms part of a 470MW battery project.          
About 120GW of new solar and wind capacity is expected in 2022.  
The agreement includes exploration of offshore wind projects.
The growth rate stabilises following an 8% increase in 2021.
This is a 10-fold increase from the Philippines grid-connected solar capacity.
32 nuclear reactors under construction are expected to bring 30GW in electricity per year.
Without banking power, the business model of solar power becomes unviable.
It is ideal for India because of its geographical location and the socio-economic opportunities it will offer, IEEFA Contributor Charles Worringham argues.
It will look into the development of a 1.2GW solar capacity in Indonesia.
The joint venture will operate under the brand Solar Radiance.
This is to support the increasing demand, according to Wood Mackenzie.
The joint venture is expected to start operations in the first half of 2022.
The product will allow coverage of consequential loss due to damages on property during PV installation.
