Relying on its expertise in wind power and innovative project development and financing, Rent-A-Port Green Energy currently supports the DEEP C Industrial Zones (a cluster of 5 industrial zones in North VietNam, with a total area of 2500 ha from which Rent-A-Port is controlling shareholder) in materializing its ambitions of being able to supplying renewable power to the manufacturing facilities installed on the industrial zone.
Plans include on the long term a mix of onshore wind, solar PV and waste-to-power, developed on a “corporate Power Purchase Agreement” tailormade for industrial zones in VietNam. Rent-A-Port Green Energy and DEEP C kicked off the development of the wind power pipeline with the announced installation of wind measurement masts and a first demonstrator wind turbine to be up and running in 2018. The first full scale wind farm of 30MW is expected to produce first megawatthours in 2019.
Both “L’Echo” and “de tijd”, reference economic and financial newspapers in Belgium reported on the project in their edition of October 5th 2017.
