La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation (La Gan Wind), owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), Asiapetro and Novasia, has awarded an offshore geotechnical contract to a consortium led by Vietsovpetro, PTSC G&S and Fugro.
The award is a part of CIP’s growth plan for the La Gan offshore wind challenge in Vietnam which, with a possible capability of three.5 GW, will likely be one of many first large-scale offshore wind farms in Vietnam.
As a part of this new contract, Fugro will present offshore geotechnical companies utilising their regional geotechnical vessel, and ship superior onshore soils laboratory testing and engineering research. The preliminary scope of labor will deal with geotechnical boreholes to develop understanding of the La Gan website’s geological options and to construct up the geological floor fashions.
Maya Malik, CEO of the La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation, mentioned: “As a accountable and skilled developer, the La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation is happy to associate with respected firms akin to Vietsovpetro, PTSC G&S and Fugro, who will be certain that the geotechnical surveys are performed to the very best technical, security and environmental requirements. We are additionally proud to implement a construction that helps the native provide chain and facilitates data switch between worldwide and native suppliers.”
Jerry Paisley, Fugro’s Director for Marine Site Characterisation in Asia-Pacific, mentioned: “It is an honour for Fugro to be related to this landmark La Gan offshore wind farm challenge and to supply geotechnical options supporting Vietnam’s vitality transition. CIP and Fugro have labored intently on comparable offshore wind initiatives within the area, particularly in Taiwan, and this award to Fugro exhibits that our Triple A strategy of Geo-data acquisition, evaluation and recommendation is clearly recognised by CIP.”
The La Gan wind farm will likely be constructed in phases, with the primary part scheduled for completion by 2026.
