Siemens Energy has been awarded a contract by Technology Resources Energy (TRE) to equip two onshore wind farms in Vietnam with digitally enhanced transmission equipment, including five power transformers. The scope of supply of connective transmission equipment includes three units of 500 kV and two units of 220 kV power transformers, three 500 kV and six 200 kV circuit-breakers as well as 15 surge arresters rated at 500 kV. All these assets will be equipped with smart IOT (Internet of Things) technology and sensors to measure important operating parameters.
The two wind farms IaPet-Dak Doa 1 and IaPet-Dak Doa 2 are both located in the Dak Doa district of Gia Lai province in the country’s central highlands and will have a capacity of 100 megawatts each. The wind farms are part of Vietnam’s ongoing Power Development Master Plan to further push the integration of renewable energy sources and to enhance the power supply. Siemens Energy will equip the substation connecting the wind farm with the national grid which is scheduled for energization in August 2021. Once completed, substations will be operated with two transformer banks of 900MVA capacity each.
At the IaPet-Dak Doa one and IaPet-Dak Doa two wind farms a total of 44 wind turbines will be installed. They are expected to generate a gross energy of about 532,622 megawatt hours annually.
