Express International ran the story ‘Offshore wind to bring opportunities to Binh Thuan Province‘ to highlight the potential impact offshore wind could have in Binh Thuan Province, one of the windiest areas in Vietnam. The article mentions our study on the potential economic benefits of the 3.5 GW La Gan Offshore Wind Project in Binh Thuan.
We forecast the La Gan project, over its lifetime, could contribute around $4.4 billion to the Vietnamese economy and create more than 45,000 direct jobs. Among the jobs created in different stages, the operations and maintenance (O&M) phase would play a crucial role in creating long-term value for local communities in Binh Thuan. Each year, the La Gan project is forecast to create over 1,000 direct jobs when the wind farm is fully operational.
