Under the MoUs, the La Gan offshore wind farm project and suppliers will work together to promote offshore wind power in Vietnam. In addition, the La Gan offshore wind farm project will facilitate knowledge transfer and provide advice on foundation design, facility layouts, and logistics and infrastructure requirements to enable the suppliers to serve the offshore wind market with international standards.
Speaking at the online signing ceremony on February 24, Danish Ambassador to Vietnam Kim Højlund Christensen affirmed that helping Vietnam’s energy sector in green energy development and transformation is one of Denmark’s priorities.
Collaboration in projects like La Gan 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, the ambassador said.
With a potential capacity of 3.5 GW, the La Gan offshore wind project will be one of the first large scale offshore wind projects in Vietnam. Once fully installed, the project is expected to power more than 7 million households per year and avoid 130 million tons of CO 2 emissions over its lifetime.
According to the BVG Associates, the project will create over 45,000 full-time equivalent (FTE) jobs and contribute over 4.4 billion USD to the economy during the course of the project.
The total rate of locally-made components will account for about 45 percent of the supply chain of the project.
As the project will be carried out for over many years, more opportunities will be given to Vietnamese contractors to join the supply chain.
Since signing the memorandum of understanding with the provincial People’s Committee last July, the project has achieved significant progress, including preparation for a field survey and approval for a survey license.
This first large-scale offshore wind power project in Vietnam is valued at USD 10 billion.

|The construction of Cau Dat Wind Farm is in full swing with completion expected by the third quarter|
The project will be powered by 15 of GE’s 4MW-137 onshore wind turbines, with a hub height of 111.5m, ideally suited to exploit the wind conditions in the mountainous range of Lam Dong province in the Central Highlands region of Vietnam. This is the first partnership with Ocean Renewable Energy JSC. Both companies have been working closely for a year on wind farm design, layout, transportation, and engineering.
The construction of Cau Dat Wind Farm is in full swing and completion is expected by the third quarter this year. The contract also provides a 10-year full service operation and management agreement for the wind farm.
The construction of the wind farm will provide immense benefits for the province’s economy, creating jobs during the construction process and employment opportunities in operation, maintenance, and project support services throughout the agreement period.

Gilan Sabatier, regional leader for GE Renewable Energy’s Onshore Wind Business in South Asia and ASEAN, said, “We thank Ocean Renewable Energy JSC and their leadership team for selecting GE for this project. The award of the Cau Dat wind farm further validates the great work and commitment we have done in Vietnam and reaffirms our important contribution to the country’s energy transition.”
“We are delighted to sign this important deal with GE Renewable Energy for our first wind farm project,” said Do Van Binh, general director of Ocean Renewable Energy JSC. “This project helps Lam Dong province contribute to the renewable energy goal of the country as well as lays the foundation for expansion of the project in the coming years.”
GE is a long-term partner in supporting Vietnam’s energy transition by bringing its innovative technology to support Vietnam in its efforts to power households with sustainable energy. Vietnam has seen an increase in the demand for energy and this wind project further expands GE’s contribution in providing technological support for a variety of power generation projects throughout the country.
GE Vietnam has more than 1,600 employees in Vietnam and is the only wind turbine original equipment manufacturer with a manufacturing footprint in the country.

Tokyo (VNA) – Director of Japan’s Dentsu company Iri Kazuaki has said that Vietnamese engineers have made important contributions to its operations over recent years.
Dentsu specialises in technical design for important infrastructure in Japan, such as optical cable systems, cable television, 5G data transmission networks, mobile information, and railway communications systems.
Ten Vietnamese engineers are currently working for the company in Japan and 85 others at its branches in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
Kazuaki lauded the Vietnamese engineers for being diligent and careful with a good basic knowledge. After a certain period in the workplace, they are able to perform many roles.
Many experienced Vietnamese engineers in Japan could be responsible for providing technical guidance or instructions on site.
Five of the 10 Vietnamese engineers have earned Japanese national certificates on electrical engineering, while the remainders are expected to join a competition to earn them.
According to Kazuaki, the company plans to recruit 400 Vietnamese engineers over the next five years.
Figures from Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare showed that Japan was home to the largest number of Vietnamese citizens living and working abroad last year, with more than 443,000, followed by those from China, with over 419,000, and the Philippines with more than 184,000./.
Vietnam Vietnam welcomed the arrival of othe first batch of AstraZeneca vaccine on February 24, with the immunisation campaign imported the first batch of AstraZeneca vaccine and is due to carry take placeout the immunization campaign in early March.
