Bechtel, GE Will Lead 3.2-GW Gas Power Project – Bac Lieu (4 x 800 MW) Combined Cycle Power Plant Project, Hoa Binh, Vietnam

The gas-fired power plant is proposed to be developed in three phases, with phase one having 1GW installed capacity, which is expected to be commissioned in 2023. The plant is expected to achieve its full capacity in 2027.

The Bac Lieu liquefied natural gas (LNG)-to-power plant is a 3.2GW power plant proposed to be built in the Bac Lieu province of Vietnam by Delta Offshore Energy (DOE), a clean energy projects developer based in Singapore.

DOE and the project contractors signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Bac Lieu Provincial Government to develop the project in October 2020. The construction of the project is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021.

The first of four 800 MW blocks is expected to be operational by early-2024, while the remaining three blocks are anticipated to be installed by 2027.

Turbine details:

The combined-cycle power plant will be installed with four General Electric (GE) 9HA.02 single-shaft turbines, each with a power-generating capacity of up to 838MW. The first turbine is scheduled to be installed in 2024, while the last turbine’s installation is anticipated to be completed by 2027.

Contractors involved in the LNG-to-power plant project:

GE Power, a subsidiary of global industrial conglomerate GE, was selected to supply four turbines for the power plant.

Multi-national engineering and construction services company McDermott was awarded the front-end engineering design (FEED) services contract for the subsea gas pipeline for the project in August 2020.

Black & Veatch, a global engineering and construction company based in the US, was selected by DOE as the technical advisor for the Bac Lieu project. The same company also completed a concept study of the plant.

Swedish firm Stena was selected to provide the floating jetty-less LNG terminal solution and the self-installing regas platform (SRP) for the project, while UK-based shipbroking services firm Howe Robinson Partners is providing LNG shipping advisory services.

KBR and South Korean construction firm SK E&C Co. Ltd will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction firms for the LNG export terminal project.
