Under the collaboration, the companies will “leverage each other’s strengths and resources” to jointly develop up to 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of wind and solar projects in Vietnam, Sembcorp said in a bourse filing.

The first phase will involve an initial funding of US$30 million to develop a 550 megawatt portfolio of utility-scale nearshore and onshore wind assets in the Ca Mau, Tra Vinh and Soc Trang provinces. BCG Energy has secured the projects, which are expected to come online by the end of 2022.

Sembcorp’s chief executive officer (CEO) of Singapore and South-east Asia Koh Chiap Khiong said Vietnam is a “key growth market” for Sembcorp in the region.

The company said it is looking to scale up its renewables portfolio in the country, after it had invested in Vietnam for more than 20 years through its integrated energy and urban management expertise.
