Bechtel to Conduct FEED for Gas Power Plant in Vietnam
Delta Offshore Energy has awarded Bechtel a contract to provide Front End Engineering Design services for a new 3,200 MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant in the Bac Lieu province, approximately 175 miles south of Ho Chi Minh City in Southern Vietnam. The plant consists of four single shaft units of H class gas turbine technology and will form the energy backbone of the Mekong Delta region, earmarked as a focus area for major economic development.
Bac Lieu is planned to become a hub for industry in the coming years with modern factories and key infrastructure including roads, bridges, schools and hospitals being built to enable its communities to thrive.
In parallel with the FEED services for the CCGT, DOE is conducting FEED for the offshore receiving terminal, negotiating the terms of the Power Purchase Agreement with Vietnam Electricity Authority and implementing site reparation works. Upon successful conclusion of the FEED, Bechtel and DOE look forward to a smooth transition into the EPC execution of the project.
Delta Offshore Energy PTE LTD is a Singapore registered company focused on project origination and development in clean energy, with offices in Singapore, Hanoi and Houston. DOE is the owner of the 3.2 GW Bac Lieu LNG-to-power project which was included in Vietnam’s national Power Development Plan 7 revise.
