Delta Offshore Energy (DOE) has awarded Bechtel a contract to provide Front End Engineering Design (FEED) services for a new 3,200 MW combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant in the Bac Lieu province, approximately 175 miles (250 kilometers) south of Ho Chi Minh City in Southern Vietnam.
Bechtel is one of the most respected global engineering, construction, and project (EPC) management companies and the largest construction firm in the U.S.
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.
“This power plant is a game changer for the Bac Lieu province,” said Scott Osborne, Bechtel’s General Manager, Infrastructure, Asia Pacific.
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.
