On 5 August 2022, global offshore wind leader Ørsted and (PTSC M&C) announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to launch collaboration on offshore wind projects.
Mr. Dong Xuan Thang, Managing Director of PTSC M&C and Mr. Sebastian Hald Buhl, Country Manager of Ørsted Vietnam sign the agreement accompanied by Mr. Troels Jakobsen, Charge D’affaire Embassy of Denmark, Ms. Vu Bich Hao, Deputy Director of Baria-Vungtau Department of Industry and Trade, Mr. Dinh Van Cong, Head of Project Development Energy Management Division, T&T Group plus members of their respective teams.
The agreement brings together Ørsted’s 30 years of experience of developing, building and operating world-class offshore wind farms with PTSC M&C’s strong track record and expertise in energy infrastructure in Asia-Pacific.
This collaboration aims to deliver state-of-the-art offshore substations for Ørsted and T&T’s proposed multi-Gigawatt pipeline of offshore wind projects to supply clean and reliable energy to Vietnam, supporting national Net-Zero targets. In addition to this domestic aspect the collaboration also has an export angle to support Ørsted’s significant global pipeline of offshore wind projects.
The signing ceremony was held at PTSC M&C’s manufacturing facility in Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàu and was attended by representatives of the Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàu local authority, the Embassy of Denmark in Vietnam, plus other partners.
Together, Ørsted and T&T Group are working with a large number of local partners and suppliers to deliver Vietnam’s first flagship offshore wind projects, targeting one project in the central south and one in the north by 2030. Offshore wind is an untapped natural resource, which like Vietnam’s oil and gas resources, can deliver significant economic benefits and provide reliable and domestic power in the quantities needed to fuel Vietnam’s booming economy.
Sebastian Hald Buhl, Country Manager of Ørsted Vietnam, says:
“Ørsted is ready to support Vietnam to unleash its full offshore wind potential. Vietnam has some of the best conditions in Asia for offshore wind power, many outstanding engineering companies and a highly skilled workforce. Today’s inaugural agreement between Ørsted and PTSC M&C demonstrates another step forward in our ambitions to collaborate closely with local suppliers to kick-start Vietnam’s new offshore wind industry.”
Dong Xuan Thang, PTSC M&C’s Managing Director, says:
“The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding with Ørsted will play a very important role for PTSC M&C to develop its capacities for offshore wind market which is growing in Asia as well as other countries around the world”.
Pascal Langeais, Head of APAC Procurement & Supply Chain, says:
“Today’s MOU affirms Ørsted’s commitment to develop and collaborate with PTSC M&C in the years ahead. It announces the beginning of a great journey between our two companies to produce reliable, large-scale green energy together."
