Thai renewable energy firm BCPG Pcl (BCPG.BK) on Tuesday said that its consortium had signed a 25-year agreement to deliver wind energy from a 600-megawatt project in Laos to Vietnam.
An agreement between Vietnam’s electricity firm EVN and Impact Energy Asia Development (IEAD), of which BCPG holds a 45% stake, will supply electricity through a 500-kilovolt transmission line from Laos to Quảng Nam province in Vietnam.
