Vietnamese subsidiary Doosan Vina signs supplier agreement for offshore wind turbine substructure with Ørsted. Vietnam’s offshore wind power market forecast to grow to 7GW by 2030.

Doosan Enerbiity announced on Nov. 3 that its Vietnamese subsidiary Doosan Vina had signed a memorandum of understanding with Denmark’s state-owned energy company Ørsted on cooperation for the supply of offshore wind turbine substructures.

An MoU signing ceremony took place at the Denmark-Vietnam Sustainable Energy Summit, which was held in Hanoi, Vietnam to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Denmark-Vietnam diplomatic relations. On hand at the ceremony were key figures from both countries, including His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark and Dang Hoang An, Vietnam’s deputy minister of industry and trade, as well as related parties from the two companies, such as Virginie Van de Cotte, Ørsted’s chief procurement officer; Kim Jae-yi, head of Doosan Enerbility’s Wind Power Business Unit, and Kim Hyo-tae, CEO of Doosan Vina.

Under the MoU, Doosan Vina will be supplying the monopile foundations, which are substructures of offshore wind turbines, for Ørsted’s global offshore wind power projects that are currently underway in Southeast Asia, the Asia Pacific region and Europe. A monopile, which is a circular steel structure created out of thick hot-rolled steel plates that are subjected to welding, is driven into the seabed as a support structure for offshore wind turbines. Being relatively easy to manufacture and install, monopile structures are becoming widely popular across the globe, centering around the European region.

“Doosan Vina, which was founded in 2007, has gained recognition over the years for its expertise in manufacturing large structures by successfully supplying the main equipment of power plants and chemical plants as well as port cranes, to clients in over 30 countries,” said the Doosan Vina CEO. He added, “Through this partnership with Ørsted, we plan to expand our foothold in not only the Vietnamese offshore wind power market, which is forecast to grow to 7GW by 2030, but a wider global wind power market.”
