The Vietnam News Agency reports that the first wind farm in Vietnam went into operation on 18th April. The project in the province of Binh Thuan currently consists of 20 turbines with a combined capacity of 30 MW. After the final expansion phase the Binh Thuan Wind Power Plant will have a total of eighty 1.5 MW turbines.

At the opening ceremony the Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc praised the efforts of Binh Thuan Province and Vietnam Renewable Energies JSC, who financed the project with around US$ 110 million. For the first two years of operation the Fuhrländer turbines will be looked after on-site by five German specialists.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
