Petrovietnam Technical Services Corporation (PTSC) on Friday cut a deal with Orsted, Denmark’s leading energy firm, to manufacture turbine foundations for the 920-MW Greater Changhua offshore wind farm in Taiwan, one of Asia’s largest offshore wind projects.

Under the deal, the Vietnamese firm will produce 33 suction bucket jacket foundations based on Orsted’s bespoke designs. They will be eco-friendly.

The foundations will be installed at the Greater Changhua 2b and 4 wind farm, which covers 185 square kilometers, in late 2025.

The project is estimated to consume 70,000 tonnes of steel and create thousands of jobs at PTSC and other contractors in the supply chain.

“The partnership with Denmark’s Orsted marked a key milestone for PTSC’s development, driving the firm’s mass production," said PTSC CEO Le Manh Cuong. "The deal is expected to contribute to forming the supply chain for offshore wind power projects in Vietnam."

“This is the first time the advanced suction bucket jacket technology has been applied in Asia Pacific,” said Jonas Bak Solhoj, development director for Greater Changhua 2b and 4.
