At an online signing ceremony on 24 February, Kim Højlund Christensen, Danish Ambassador to Vietnam stated that Denmark prioritizes supporting Vietnam’s energy sector with green development and transformation, writes Vietnam Plus.
The Ambassador was speaking at the signing ceremony of Memoranda of Understanding on cooperation in the supply of pile foundations and logistics ports for the La Gan offshore wind power project in the south-central province of Binh Thuan. The Ambassador said that collaboration in projects like the La Gan wind power project will contribute to expanding and enhancing cooperation between the two countries in sharing information, and improving the capacity of experts and employees, especially in the offshore wind power supply chain.
Developed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), Asiapetro, and Novasia, the La Gan wind power project will have an estimated capacity of nearly 3.5 GW and is expected to generate electricity for over 7 million households each year. It is one of the first large-scale offshore wind power projects in Vietnam with a total investment of USD 10 billion.
Since the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the provincial People’s Committee in July 2020, the project has achieved significant progress, including preparing for a field survey and approving survey licenses.
