AqualisBraemar LOC Continues Offshore Wind Streak in Vietnam
PowerChina Huadong Engineering Co. Ltd. has appointed AqualisBraemar LOC as marine warranty surveyor on phases 2 and 3 on the Binh Dai Wind Farm Development offshore Vietnam.
Phases 2 and 3 include the installation of 24 units of Goldwind turbines.
AqualisBraemar LOC’s scope of work includes the technical review and approval of all project documentation pertaining to the marine transportation and installation operations of wind farm components, on site attendance to oversee all critical marine operations, and vessel suitability surveys of all proposed offshore support vessels, including semi-submersible installation vessels.
The plan is to complete the work between now and October this year.
Previously, PowerChina Huadong Engineering Co. Ltd engaged AqualisBraemar LOC to provide marine warranty services on phase 1 of the offshore wind farm construction.
The Binh Dai offshore wind power plant has approximately 310 MW with 74 offshore wind turbines to be installed in eight phases.
”To win the 2nd and 3rd phases at Binh Dai 1 is testament of the work we are currently providing on phase 1 of the project. We are really pleased to have the opportunity to continue our cooperation with such an ambitious client as PowerChina Huadong Engineering Co. Ltd,” said Donny Ng, business development director at AqualisBraemar LOC’s office in Singapore.
Since the beginning of 2020, AqualisBraemar LOC has been appointed marine warranty surveyor on seven offshore wind farms under construction in Vietnamese waters, with sister companies OWC and Longitude providing engineering and advisory services on a further three wind farms offshore Vietnam.
”Our growing track-record in Vietnamese offshore wind is a reflection of both the global reputation we have cultivated as a leading marine warranty service provider for the offshore wind sector, as well as of our recognised technical expertise in supporting the accelerated development of offshore wind across South East Asia,” said Donny Ng.
