Pondera to attend Vietnam’s Offshore Roundtable

During Vietnam’s Offshore Wind Roundtable on November 22nd, Eric Arends, director of Pondera Consult, will discuss the potential and outlook for the offshore wind industry in Vietnam and the potential for local and regional offshore companies and investors to participate in this future market. This event will bring together senior executives from the offshore wind industry in Asia.

The wind energy potential in Vietnam is very high and preparations to develop certain areas for wind energy are in progress. The Netherlands is a front runner in the field of wind energy with Dutch companies contributing to the majority of offshore and nearshore wind farms throughout the world. In the Netherlands, parties are looking with great interest at the renewable energy policy plans and wind energy development in Vietnam. In 2017, Pondera Consult was asked by the Dutch government (Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO) to carry out a study on the opportunities to contribute to wind energy development in Vietnam.
