Offshore wind developer Enterprize Energy has announced the commencement of initial marine surveys off the coast of Binh Thuan province for its 3.4GW Thang Long Offshore Wind project, the largest offshore wind farm to be granted a survey license by the Vietnamese government.

The license thus granted, is in sync with the government’s target to become a clean energy leader in the APAC region, targeting 21% installed renewable energy capacity by 2030. The region’s waters have the potential to generate around 160GW of wind energy.

David Wotherspoon, Development Director for Enterprize Energy, commented, “We have completed a full year of LIDAR wind data measurement which has confirmed the high potential of the wind resource in this area. Through these initial survey works, we will confirm which locations we will focus on for more intensive geophysical and geotechnical work in the near future. We can then optimize our development locations to ensure that we are harnessing the best wind resource off the coast of Binh Thuan, working closely with local communities and existing sea area interests in the surrounding region throughout the development process.”

“We are pleased that we have been able reach agreement with the fishing communities on a policy which was recently approved by the Binh Thuan People’s Committee. This example of closely working with the communities dependant on the sea area sets an example of good practice to be followed in the development of offshore wind in Vietnam.”

The first 600MW phase of the project is due to come online by the end of 2025, with further phases developed on a rolling basis, subject to grid availability.
