LOC Singapore, a subsidiary of LOC Group, the premier international marine and engineering consulting firm, is pleased to announce it won a contract to provide Marine Warranty Survey (“MWS”) services for the transportation and installation operations of the Binh Dai Phase 1 OWF (“Offshore Wind Farm”) Project, in Vietnam.
The contract is provided by PowerChina HuaDong Engineering Ltd (“PCH”)., a leading globally engineering and construction firm, with over 8,000 employees worldwide, based in Hangzhou, China.
Under the terms of agreement, LOC will provide MWS services, including suitability surveys of the proposed support fleet. The team will also provide expertise in a range of other marine vessel inspection and marine assurance services when necessary.
Located in the south-east area of the Vietnamese province of Ben Tre, the Binh Dai project is expected to have a total capacity of 310 MW. This will contribute to increasing the power source for the regional grid, helping to improve the voltage and increase the safety of power supplies across the province.
Phase 1 of the windfarm development will consist of 7 Siemens Gamesa turbines.
This project follows a series of contract wins this year for LOC Renewables in Singapore, specifically supporting the construction of OWFs in Vietnam, including on Dong Hai 1 Phase 1 and Hoa Binh 1 Phase 1.
Donny Ng, LOC Renewables Project Director, LOC Singapore, said:
“The team at LOC Singapore is delighted to be awarded this contract with PCH. We have previously worked with PCH on MWS inspections and continue to benefit from the positive relationship we have with the client. Winning this contract again demonstrates the Group’s expanding reputation in the South East Asia energy market, as well as it’s leading position as a world-class provider of MWS services in the offshore wind farm segment.”
