WCN Editorial Team 3 Aug 2018 ASIA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Finnish consulting and engineering company Pöyry has won a contract from Super Energy Corporation for a 340MW wind farm project in Ca Mau, Bac Lieu, and Soc Trang provinces in Vietnam.

Super Energy, a Thailand-based renewable energy developer, plans to spend $600m over the next three to four years in expanding its renewable energy portfolio to meet the demand in Southeast Asia.

The value of the order was not disclosed. The Ca Mau wind farm project is made up of six sub-projects.

Pöyry’s work will include a feasibility study, wind turbine generator supplier selection, technical review of EPC contracts, as well as project management and engineering design review for the wind farms.

Among the six sub-projects, the 40MW wind farm facility in Ca Mau will be completed first in the second quarter of 2020, followed by the 30MW wind farm in Soc Trang Phase 1 by mid-2020 and the 142MW wind farm in Bac Lieu by the end of 2020.

Pöyry regional director Petteri Härkki said: “We are proud to have been chosen by Super Energy Corporation as one of their partners for boosting renewable energy generation in Southeast Asia.

“This project further strengthens Pöyry’s role in supporting the renewables boom in the South East Asian region, where we have so far been involved in more than 4,000MW of solar and 3,000MW of wind power projects.”

Pöyry has so far been involved in more than 4,500MW of power generation capacity in Vietnam.

The company is currently developing and constructing more than 5,000MW of thermal power and renewable energy projects in Vietnam, including solar and wind power projects.

Previously, Pöyry had won an EPCM contract from Nordic energy company Gasum for the expansion of Topinoja biogas plant in Turku, Finland. The work will be carried out between May 2018 and June 2019.

The project involves the expansion and modernisation of the Topinoja biogas plant, and the construction of a biogas upgrading and liquefaction plant. The expansion project will be completed in 2019.
