Allan Baker, Global Head of Power & Oil and Gas for Société Générale said “We believe that the Ke Ga offshore wind project has huge significance for the energy transition in Vietnam and will also position Vietnam as a key offshore wind development hub for the wider region. The mandate further illustrates Société Générale’s strong focus on renewable energy across the Asia Pacific region, including in new markets and for new asset classes.”
