Airswift, a workforce solutions provider for the energy sector, has formed a joint venture with Source of Asia (SOA) for tapping the offshore wind sector in Vietnam.

Based in Ho Chi Minh City, SOA will provide support to Airswift’s candidates and clients working in the region’s offshore wind market, which has an estimated capacity potential of 160GW.

“Vietnam’s 3,200km long coastline means there’s huge potential for the country to be a leader in offshore wind. With more than 70 projects slated for development, there is a significant opportunity to develop the local economy and decarbonise its electricity supply,” Charles Pfauwadel, VP Asia at Airswift, said.

It can be complex for companies to navigate how to operate – from visas and immigration to relocation services, Thierry Mermet, CEO at SOA, said.

Airswift has more than 20 operational locations across the Asia region, including its delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and one of its three corporate hubs in Singapore. Globally, the company now has over 60 fully interconnected offices.
