In 2018 and 2019 Our Footprints was asked to fulfil the lead roles of Project Director, Electrical Engineering Manager and QA/QC Manager for the largest solar farm project in Southeast Asia.
The site covers an area of 350 hectares in the Ninh Thuan province in Southern Viet Nam, and is divided into three Photovoltaic (PV) solar farms, as well as two grid-connection sub-stations and an inter-connecting switching-station. The combined scheme has a total installed capacity of 330MWp spread over the three neighbouring solar farms.
Now operational, the solar scheme will produce 545 million kWh (kilowatt hours) of clean energy annually. This will contribute to Viet Nam’s target of producing approximately 7% of its electricity needs from renewable energy by 2020.
Our Footprints were brought onto the project by Lloyds Register, and were responsible for managing the construction and engineering and for delivering the project on schedule and within budget.
Jamie Cornish who acted as the Project Director said;
“It was a true privilege to have had the opportunity to lead this significant project. One particular aim of ours was to share our experience and acquired knowledge with the local team, to help them move forward with building future renewable energy projects in Viet Nam.”
Our Footprints has an adaptable and flexible team who are able to hit the ground running at any point in a project, providing best practice to international standards.
Our Footprints have shown outstanding dedication and commitment to ensuring the successful delivery of a large solar project in Vietnam. To have their experience and expertise on the ground in this emerging market has been invaluable to the project
