Vietnam is expanding its power generation capacity as it balances its generation portfolio and meet the soaring energy demand of its growing population and flourishing economy.
To advance energy security with decarbonization and sustainability commitments, Vietnam is prioritizing the development of its renewable energy infrastructure.
Renewable energy, according to Black & Veatch’s Strategic Directions: Electric Industry Asia 2021 Report, is expected to experience the most significant investment growth in new generation capacity over the next three to five years.
The Ia Pech 1 and Ia Pech 2 wind farms, located in Ia Grai district of Gia Lai province, are examples of investments in Vietnam’s renewable energy developments.
Dien Xanh Gia Lai Investment Energy Joint Stock Company, the developer of the la Pech wind farms, has engaged Black & Veatch as the Owner’s Engineer for both wind farms. Each Ia Pech wind farm project will have a capacity of 50 megawatts (MW).
