Installing the first turbine foundation at Soc Trang 7 project

21/06/2021

Wandering in the fields with the wings of storks flying, getting lost in the luxuriant gardens of sweet fruit in the mid-afternoon summer of June, and then experiencing the sacred places of temples, ... there are moments of heaven that we find there. There are spaces where we find some peace, bringing us back to the peace of mind that can't be found anywhere else. Soc Trang just naturally entered people's souls like that, simple and poetic, enough to make people's hearts go home. And the special thing that cannot be missed in this journey to this Western land is that the first turbine tower of Soc Trang 7 Offshore Wind Farm was successfully installed on June 19, 2021, marks an important step forward after the day and night efforts of Sigma engineers here.

It is known that this is the first turbine foundation among 07 wind turbines of the Soc Trang 7 Offshore Wind Farm project, by Sigma Engineering JSC as the BOP Phase 1 General Contractor with a capacity of 30 MW. All wind turbine equipment of the Factory is imported from a reputable Wind Power Manufacturer - Vestas according to European standards, ensuring quality and long-term performance.
 
With the great support of modern machinery and equipment and the precise manipulation ability of engineers and workers on site, the installation of the first wind turbine was completed on schedule, ensuring the technical standards as designed.

Specifically:
  • June 17: 13000T barge with 1250T crane was present at the project and the crane complex was completed.
  • June 18: Carrying out load testing and verification.
  • June 19: The barge landed at the base position of the ST1-1.7 turbine piers, completed 2 installations T1, T2.
Starting to deploy from the end of October 2020, despite facing fluctuations in weather and harsh working conditions, complex geological terrain, and the effects of the Covid-19 epidemic, the Sigma's engineers and workers have adapted very well to complete important turbine foundation construction items, including completing the concreting of the turbine foundation on June 4, 2021, completing 90% of the bridge items; completed most of the 22 kV transmission line and installed wind turbines. As planned, Sigma will complete the installation for all 7 turbines in July 2021; conduct connection and T&C in August 2021.
