Hanoi (VNA) – Hai Long Offshore Wind Power has signed a preferred supplier agreement with a Vietnamese consortium led by Semco Maritime A/S of Denmark and PetroVietnam Technical Services Corporation Mechanical & Construction (PTSC M&C) of Vietnam to construct two offshore substations off the coast of Chinese Taiwan.

The consortium will deliver design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning for the two substations with a total weight of 18,000 tonnes. Of which, PTSC M&C will take charge of designing the foundation and building for all components of the project.

The substations' jackets will be manufactured at PTSC M&C’s facilities in Vung Tau in the 2022-2024 period. It is expected that the project will be put into operation in 2025 - 2026 and provide more than 1 GW of clean energy.

A leader of PTSC M&C said that the project is the first contractor project of this company in the field of renewable energy services, adding that it will be an important foundation for the company to anticipate the trend of energy restructuring from fossil fuels to clean energy that is taking place widely in Vietnam as well as other countries around the world.

PTSC M&C is an enterprise specialising in building oil platforms in Vietnam./.
