Power Construction Corporation of China (POWERCHINA) has recently completed the Ca Mau 1 Wind Power Project situated in Ca Mau, the southernmost province of Vietnam.
This project is the largest offshore wind power venture in Southeast Asia, boasting a total installed capacity of 350 MW and consisting of four wind farms (A, B, C, and D).
The Ca Mau 1 Wind Power Project is anticipated to generate 1.1 billion KWH of new power annually, resulting in savings of approximately 450,000 tons of standard coal and a reduction of roughly 880,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. This outcome will significantly alleviate the power deficit in the local area and the southern Vietnam region in general.
POWERCHINA introduced the double-deck sea transportation equipment for offshore wind power tower barrels, which eliminated the long-standing dependence on single-deck sea transportation for tower barrels that measure over 5 meters in diameter.
This innovation raised the maximum stacked height of wind power tower barrels for international sea transportation from 10 meters to 14 meters, and the maximum stacked weight from 100 tons to 240 tons, effectively reducing transportation costs and saving ship deck area.
Apart from the Ca Mau 1 Project, POWERCHINA also participated in the development of the 171 MW offshore wind power project in Soc Trang and Bac Lieu, as well as the 310 MW offshore wind power project in Binh Dai, both located in Vietnam.
In July 2022, POWERCHINA signed a new agreement on the Wind Farm Project in Kai long-Ca Mau Tourism Zone in Vietnam.
