August 20 (Renewables Now) - Southeast Asian firm Modern Energy Management (MEM) was selected as the owner’s representative to commence commercial operations of a 48-MW intertidal wind farm in Vietnam.

MEM received the order from Climate Investor One (CIO) and South Korean energy company ST International (STI), it announced on Thursday.

Named Tra Vinh Wind Power (TWPC), the intertidal wind park is expected to begin commercial operations before November 2021, making it one of the first of its kind to achieve commercial operations under Vietnam’s current feed-in-tariff (FiT) scheme.

For this particular project, MEM has provided overall project management, technical and design support and auction management in relation to the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work. The Southeast Asian firm will now close out TWPC’s construction and begin commercial operations, the announcement says.

As power demands in Vietnam are expected to double between 2020 and 2030, the country targets 6 GW of installed wind power capacity by the end of the decade.
