La Gan Wind Power Development Corp, which is owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), Asiapetro and Novasia, has awarded a geotechnical contract to a consortium led by Vietsovpetro, PTSC G&S and Fugro
The award is part of CIP’s development plan for the La Gan offshore wind project in Vietnam which, with a potential capacity of 3.5 GW, will be one of the first large-scale offshore windfarms in Vietnam.
As part of this new contract, Fugro will provide offshore geotechnical services utilising its regional geotechnical vessel and deliver advanced onshore soil laboratory testing and engineering studies.
The initial scope of work will focus on geotechnical boreholes to expand understanding of the La Gan site’s geological features and to build up the geological ground models.
The La Gan offshore windfarm will be constructed in phases, with the first phase scheduled for completion by 2026.
Riviera Maritime Media will provide free technical and operational webinars in 2021. Sign up to attend on our events page
