La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation signs MoUs with local contractors

The La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation, developer of the La Gan offshore wind farm project owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, Asiapetro and Novasia, signed four Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) on foundation supply and harbour services.

With a potential capacity of 3.5 GW, the
La Gan offshore wind project will be one of the first large scale offshore wind projects in Vietnam.  Once fully installed, the project is expected to power more than 7 million households per year and avoid 130 million tonnes of CO2 emissions over its lifetime.

The MOUs were signed with Vietnam-based contractors: CS Wind Corporation, PTSC Mechanical and Construction (PTSC M&C), Southern Petroleum Construction J.S.0 (Alpha ECC) and Vietsovpetro.

Under the MOUs, the La Gan offshore wind farm project and suppliers will work together to promote offshore wind power in Vietnam. In addition, the La Gan offshore wind farm project will facilitate knowledge transfer and provide advice on foundation design, facility layouts, logistics and infrastructure requirements, which is expected to enable the suppliers to serve the offshore wind market to international standards.

"I would like to congratulate the La Gan project for making an important and steady step forward today with the signing of the four MOUs on foundation supply and harbour services. One of the key priorities in our long-term cooperation with Vietnam is to support a green development and a green transition in the country's energy sector. Development of foreign investment projects such as the La Gan project will contribute to further expanding and intensifying our close cooperation with Vietnam in knowledge-sharing and capacity building for industry experts and practitioners, especially in the offshore wind supply chain,"
said H.E. Mr. Kim Hedlund Christensen, Ambassador of Denmark in Vietnam.

"The signings with four Vietnam-based suppliers today confirms our serious commitment to facilitate knowledge transfer and promote the localization of the offshore wind industry in Vietnam. It is our intention to ensure that our investments filter to the local economy and the Vietnamese people wherever it is feasible. The engagement of Alpha ECC, CS Wind, PTSC M&C and Vietsovpetro, also shows the dedication of local industry leaders to invest in offshore wind energy and to support the government of Vietnam's vision for an energy green transformation. La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation is honoured to partner with these suppliers to realize Vietnam 's vision,"said Ms. Maya Malik, Chief Executive Officer of the La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation.

Since the signing of the MOU with Binh Thuan People's Committee in July 2020, the La Gan offshore wind farm project has actively progressed development activities in close collaboration with the local authorities, suppliers and service providers.
