|HTL is assigned to perform the transportation and installation works for all equipment of the Bac Lieu Wind Farm project, phase 1of 10 wind turbines of 1.6MW each. The equipment is supplied by GE USA through different GE suppliers in the world. |
HTL transported the main components by seaway from China to Ben Nghe and Phu My port, then transshipped the cargos onto barges and moved by riverway to a storage yard in Can Tho and finally transshiped set by set to the Bac Lieu Wind Farm jobsite for installation works.
As the job site is located on Bac Lieu coast, about 1-2km away from the dike, all installation works must be done on the barges and crane barges. This is a big challenge for installer due to restricted installation area, difficult working conditions (depending much on sea state, tidal scheme and weather conditions). In spite of the difficulties, on October 21st, 2011, HTL has been successfully installed the first wind turbine.
