EVN is ready to cooperate in developing Ke Ga wind power project

This was the statement of EVN’s President and CEO Tran Dinh Nhan in the meeting with Mr. Ian Hatton – Chairman of Enterprize Energy Company, the representative of Ke Ga Cape offshore wind power project developers.

Mr. Ian Hatton expressed his pleasure to have the opportunity to work with the top management of Vietnam Electricity for discussing specific information on Ke Ga offshore wind power project.

Ke Ga project has a total capacity of 3,400MW, which is one of the leading large - scale offshore wind power projects in the world. The project has a total investment cost of nearly USD 12 billion, being developed offshore in Binh Thuan province, from 20km to 50km away from Ke Ga cape or the mainland.

The project is divided into several phases of development, with about 600MW of capacity being developed in each investment phase. It is expected that the first phase of the project will come into operation by the end of 2022. Power Engineering Consulting Joint Stock Company 3 (PECC3) is one of the organizations involved in the project implementation.

Mr. Ian Hatton, the representative of project developers, expressed his expectation to receive EVN's support during the implementation process, as well as when the project goes into commercial operation.
