LOC Group is pleased to announce it has won a contract to provide support to the Phase 1 development of the Dong Hai 1 Wind Power Plant with the capacity of 50MW. The contract is awarded by EPC Contractor BAC Phuong Joint Stock Company, based on Hanoi, Vietnam.

LOC will provide Marine Warranty Services (MWS) to support the development of the plant. The scope of the services will be for loadout, transportation and installation of 13 units of Vestas V150-4.0 series Wind Turbine Generators, the inter-turbine MV cables and link bridge sections.

The Dong Hai 1 Wind Power Plant Phase 1 will enable power to be added to the national electricity system, to provide electricity to the Bac Lieu province and the southwest region of Vietnam.

Key aspects of the power plant project involve the construction of a new 22/110kV Transformer station, a switchboard station, consisting of 6 outgoing feeders, the formation of a 4.1Km 110 kV transmission line, connecting the 13 wind turbines, and the creation of circuits to connect the wind turbines to the Dong Hai 1 power station.

The project will be run from the Company’s Singapore office, with support from other LOC offices and group companies, including Longitude and Innosea. It also represents LOC Renewables’ growing presence and expertise in the South-East Asian market, expanding further afield from our offices, including Taiwan where we have recently established a new presence.
