Securing two new owner's engineer roles in Vietnam
K2 Management has been appointed to deliver consultancy services on two wind projects in Vietnam – one nearshore and one onshore wind project.
Developer Xuan Cau and an international investor engaged K2 Management as Owner’s Engineer for a 60 MW onshore wind farm in the Binh Dinh province of Vietnam. The scope of work will begin with tendering of BoP package in the pre-construction phase and full construction management through to commissioning, which is expected by end 2021.
The second mandate, also for Xuan Cau, is an Owner’s Engineer role on a nearshore wind farm located at Soc Trang province. The project will have a capacity of 120 MW divided into two phases. Scope of work for this 18-month role includes tendering, site studies and technical design review during the pre-construction phase followed by construction monitoring and project management.
Mr Mai Đức Hùng, Project Secretary from Xuan Cau, said: “Xuan Cau has strong renewable energy ambitions in Vietnam. Wind projects are complex, not only technically but also in getting contracting and tendering right."
"K2 Management shares with us the right balance of international experience as well as local knowledge and technical expertise, which is a great benefit in this growing market. We are confident that with their support these projects will be a great success.”
Alexandre Marinho, Senior Project Manager at K2 Management, said: “Projects close to the sea or in the sea require extra special attention at all phases of the project. From the sourcing of the turbines and balance of plant to the execution of the project, everything has an additional challenging layer, compared to a standard onshore wind project.”
“We are very pleased to work alongside this well-established, international wind player and local major developer, bringing our technical know-how and experience to make better energy projects.”
K2 Management has a strong track record in Vietnam and is currently working on four wind projects in the construction phase and two in pre-construction.
