Vietnam - Renewable Energy in Harmony with Nature

Vietnam has a fast growing population of about 90 million people and an economy which is rapidly developing.

The country is focusing on renewable energy, mainly hydropower, which currently contributes some 33% of the total power generation. With an annual hydro potential of 120,000 GWh, of which less than half has been developed as of today, Vietnam is one of the most vital and prospective hydropower markets.



ANDRITZ HYDRO has run a representative office in the capital Hanoi for more than 15 years, but has been active in the country since the 1960s. More than 50 units with a combined total capacity of about 1,000 MW has been installed or rehabilitated by ANDRITZ HYDRO.

In 2016, ANDRITZ HYDRO Com­pany Limited was established (100% FDI of ANDRITZ HYDRO Austria GmbH) to better cover the local activities in Vietnam.
