Southeast Asian firm Modern Energy Management (MEM) said it was picked by India’s Hero Future Energies (HFE) as the owner’s engineer for a 100-MW wind project in Vietnam.
For this project, MEM has already provided technical advisory and engineering services.
In the next stage, the Southeast Asian firm will proceed to work on wind engineering, procurement advisory, and contracting support, the announcement says.
To be located in Vietnam’s Kon Tum province, the project will not be completed before the country’s current feed-in-tariff (FIT) mechanism expires on November 1, 2021.
“We are watching government communications regarding possible news related to a new FIT in Vietnam. The project will be looking towards the next program when it’s announced,” commented Aaron Daniels, managing director of MEM.
Recently, Vietnam raised its 2030 wind renewable energy target to 11 GW from 6 GW.
