November 29 (Renewables Now) - Finnish consulting and engineering firm Poyry Plc (HEL:POY1V) said today it has been awarded an owner's engineer services assignment for a 257-MW solar project in Vietnam’s Phu Yen province.
The contract, whose value was not disclosed, has been awarded by solar power producer Phu Yen TTP, a joint venture between Thai company B.Grimm Power PCL (SET:BGRIM) and Truong Thanh Viet Nam Group (TTVN). The project company for the so-called Hoa Hai scheme, is 80%-owned by B. Grimm, which purchased the stake in August.
Under the deal, booked in Poyry’s Energy Business Group order stock for the second half of 2018, the Finnish firm will provide assistance in project management, design review and carry out site supervision services during the construction and commissioning phases. It expects its job under the contract to last nine months.
Planned to be one of the largest solar parks in South East Asia, the Hoa Hoi complex will be installed in the South Central Coast area of Vietnam. A 220-kV electrical interconnection will also be set up as part of the project.
