Ho Chi Minh office to support energy projects
GAC Group has partnered with SME Logistics to open its first ever branch in Vietnam. The office, located in Ho Chi Minh, supports customers at ports along the Saigon River with an integrated portfolio of shipping, logistics and marine services for a wide range of sectors, including dry and liquid bulk, liners, FMCGs and offshore energy.
The launch of the new facility comes in response to growing customer demand for shipping and logistics services in the region. It is also designed to provide an opportunity to support exploration, production, and maintenance operations for Vietnam’s burgeoning offshore wind farm projects.
Vietnam is planning to scale up its wind-power generation capabilities to about 30% by 2050, up from 5% currently, with more than 120 offshore wind farm projects currently scheduled for construction. (ben)
