The first nearshore wind farm (99MW) developed in Vietnam was commissioned in 2016 in the Mekong Delta, with the turbines connected to shore by piled walkways. Since that time a number of other nearshore projects have commenced construction in the area.
A common feature of all these projects is the deep soft marine deposits that necessitate long piles, and the difficult inter-tidal conditions that increases the time for and cost of construction. This presentation examines the design concepts being used at these projects and draws on learnings that Mainstream Renewable Power has made in developing the 1400MW offshore wind farm in Soc Trang that is in preparation for a construction start in Q4 2021.
