Wind energy – Vietnam
On July 15th, 2021, the La Gan Wind Power Development Corporation, developer of the 3.5 GW La Gan Offshore Wind Power Project, signed a major offshore geological survey contract: the La Gan GeoTechnical Survey Campaign Contract with Vietsovpetro.
Due to the recent COVID 19 development in Vietnam, the signing was conducted virtually and witnessed by the Danish Ambassador to Vietnam, H.E. Mr. Kim Højlund Christensen.
Under this contract, Vietsovpetro will engage PetroVietnam Technical Services Corporation (PTSC) and Fugro Singapore Ltd as sub-contractors to collect soil and rock samples deep under the seabed.
The samples will be tested in sophisticated laboratories and used to build detailed ground models of the seabed under the wind farm area.
These ground models are essential for designing the offshore foundation structures and subsea cables of the La Gan offshore wind farm.
