Mr. Nguyen Tam Tien, CEO of Trung Nam Group, comments on the great
efforts that led to the completion and commissioning of the project: “This is
an important milestone because we are unlocking more than 1 billion kWh of potential energy from renewable sources alone. In addition, this
project helps to integrate power from the South Central Coastal grid, and also
from abundant renewable energy sources in Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan provinces.
It helps to efficiently use surplus energy generated from existing renewable
power plants, which could otherwise be damaging and substantially costly for
the plant owners.
He continues: “Thanks to this project’s success, we are looking
forward to building more plants in future that will contribute to reinforcing
Vietnam’s energy security and create positive impact on our national economy.
This is in line with the vision in the Resolution 55 of the Vietnam Communist
Party Politburo. I’d like to express my appreciation for the whole team and
Siemens Energy for being a trusted and reliable partner in supporting the
development of our renewable power sources and power transmission
infrastructure, and for this timely delivery that exceeded the expectations.”
Head of Transmission Products and Systems Asia Pacific Hub, Mr. Steve Loo explained what makes this project even more outstanding is having to overcome many challenges that were thrown upon the team. “The health and safety of our employees are of utmost importance for us. Thus, the team had to operate under special precautions to protect everybody against COVID-19. We are thankful that everything worked out well.”
“I would like
to express my high appreciation for the local Vietnam team and all factories
involved who have worked tremendously hard to ensure the project’s success. We
are extremely proud of the team’s achievement that will certainly augur well
for future collaborations with the customer,” he said.
