Two hundred firms from 22 countries and territories are currently attending the 4th international exhibition on power generation, transmission and distribution (Elenex Vietnam 2012) held in Ho Chi Minh City from September 19-21.

At the same time as Elenex Vietnam 2012, the Architecture Building M&E Vietnam 2012 and the Industrial Automation Vietnam 2012 are also taking place. All are co-organised by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry Exhibitions Company (Vietcham Expo) and the Hong Kong Exhibition Services Company.

The biennial event attracts leading power companies like AKSA Power Generation, Genpower Asia, ABB, Rital and Mekong Machinery, which showcase their best products and services, including diesel generators, relay testers, bus bar systems, safety boxes, cabling and gas recovery and extraction equipment.

According to the organisers, Vietnam ’s demand for energy will rise by 14 percent over the next three years and domestic companies need to access new technologies to keep up with the country’s industrial and economic development pace.

Bui Thuc Anh, the Director of VietCham Expo, said that the event has proved to be effective in promoting business and investment and supporting the development of the power sector.-VNA
